It is an honour and pleasure to have been elected by the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority as Chairman of the Sustainable Development Fund Committee for the coming year. I would also like to congratulate Cllr Malcolm Colbran on his election as Vice Chairman and welcome Mrs Liz
Davies, Cllr Edwin Roderick and Cllr Ann Webb to the Committee.
I wish especially to thank the former Chairman Mrs Deborah Perkin whose enthusiasm and passion for the work of the SDF was inspirational. I would also like to thank former committee members Cllrs Karen Laurie Parry (Vice Chair), Ian McIntosh and Kevin Madge for their input and considerable expertise and Mr. Chris Coppock for his continuing work on the Fund. Furthermore I would also like to acknowledge the invaluable advice of the GAP members.
Also a huge thank you to NPA officers Ceri Bevan and Helen Roderick without whose hard work the remit of the Fund and Committee would not be possible.
I have pleasure in presenting the 2019/20 annual report.
Cllr Michael J Jones
Sustainable Development Fund Chair
