Exmoor National Park Authority (ENPA)

Category: Other

Exmoor was designated as a National Park in 1954. Since then the co-ordination of work to achieve National Park purposes in the area has been undertaken by local government – first by the county councils and, since 1997, by a free-standing authority. The authority decides what measures can be taken to achieve these purposes, which are:

To conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the National Parks and To promote opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the Parks by the public
