Following the delegation of new legislative powers to Wales, the Welsh Government has announced a range of proposed new Bills which will affect the Welsh National Parks and how they are managed. The consequences of these proposals could have a significant impact on our National Parks. Accordingly, the Friends, together with the Alliance for Welsh Designated Landscapes (AfWDL) and the Welsh National Park Societies (WNPS), are closely monitoring any new proposals and, if thought appropriate, responding to them as and when the consultation documents are launched. The Friends’ submissions on consultation documents are below, in date order of our responses with the latest at the top.
