Future Beacons: The Management Plan for the Brecon Beacons National Park 2022-2027

Thank you for visiting the consultation page of the National Park Management Plan website.

The full document can be downloaded here.

The summary of the document can be downloaded here. 

The Authority has developed a new Management Plan which is referred to as Future Beacons. This plan sets out a series of objectives and policies to guide the implementation of National Park’s purposes and duty. This is to ensure that the landscape, people and natural and cultural heritage of the park are secured of a prosperous future. 

The Management Plan is most importantly a plan for the area of the National Park. That is why it is so important that we make sure everyone in the Park has an opportunity to collaborate with us on writing a shared plan for the future.   

We have worked with key stakeholders to define critical issues for the future of the National Park and used these to define what we as an Authority think this means for the Park. 

The consultation period has now CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who responded to the plan and we look forward to reading the comments and taking them into consideration.

The documents was open for public consultation for a period of 17 weeks from  4th November 2021 until 4th March 2022.
