Public views sought on first stage of National Parks review

4th July 2008

A questionnaire seeking initial public and stakeholder views on the work of the National Park Authorities goes live online today.

Members of the public are invited to complete the short questionnaire here, which is on the Scottish Government website.

The questionnaire is available from July 3 to August 1, 2008 and the results will be taken into account in the conclusions of Stage 1 of the Review which reports in the autumn.

As part of the Scottish Government’s commitment to ‘More Effective Government’, Stage 1 of this Strategic Review will examine the most appropriate organisational options for undertaking National Park functions. It will also look at how these functions are currently being carried out by the National Park Authorities.

Full details of Stage 2 of the Review will be determined in light of findings from Stage 1.
