Developing a Town & Community Council Charter in the Brecon Beacons

Brecon Beacons National Park Authority (BBNPA) worked with Town and Community Councils across the National Park (50 Councils) to develop a Community Council/National Park Authority Charter and Action Plan to detail and guide better ways of working together (within respective remits) to benefit local people.

Town & Community Councillors represent their local communities. They engage with BBNPA in this role in many ways: commenting on planning applications, contributing to the development of the Local Development Plan, contributing to consultation on other BBNPA plans (e.g. the National Park Management Plan- the overarching plan for the Park and many thematic plans under this), liaising with specialist Park officers to develop projects and services in a range of areas: tourism, rights of way, community facilities, events and festivals and more.
