Some of the recent highlights of the Authority’s work in Snowdonia National Park.
Snowdonia National Park Authority’s work covers a wide range of issues from planning and development to conservation, forestry and agriculture.
The Authority is the primary public body responsible for the National Park and has statutory functions that must be fulfilled.
Snowdonia National Park Authority Purposes
The Authority shares the same functions as many other Authorities across England and Wales. These are statutory functions.
- To protect and enhance natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage
- To promote opportunities for the public to understand and enjoy the special qualities of the National Parks.
In fulfilling these functions, National Park Authorities are also required to support the economic and social well-being of the National Park’s local communities.
