Coronavirus regulations expired in Wales on 30 May 2022. The Welsh Government recommends that people continue to take simple steps to protect their health, such as wearing a face covering in indoor crowded or enclosed places. Although self-isolation is no longer a legal requirement, in order to reduce the risk of passing the virus to others, if you have symptoms you should get a test and then self-isolate if you test positive.
If you are heading out to enjoy the National Park’s great outdoors, we ask you to tread lightly. Follow the Countryside Code and leave only footprints.
The Authority’s headquarters is open to the public Monday-Thursday from 9am-5pm and from 9am-4.30pm on Fridays. Please visit the Contact Us section for details on how to contact Authority staff if you wish to get in touch.
Please visit the Welsh Government website for full details of what you need to do.

Development Management (Planning) Service
The Authority’s Development Management service has continued to operate as far as practicable during the Coronavirus restrictions.
Our website is operating as normal with access to Development Management Committee agendas, papers and minutes as well as normal public access to the detail on planning applications.
As of 1 September 2020 and until further notice we will no longer be able to offer planning advice over the phone or via email and our planning surgery is suspended. This is to enable officers to clear the backlog of planning applications and pre-applications that has built up as a result of Covid-19 and IT issues.
Development Management Committee meetings will be held virtually and can be viewed via a live video stream with details of how to watch on via the Committee Papers page.
Staff do not have access to the offices at present. As a result site notices will be used as the main form of publicity during this period for all applications rather than direct letters to neighbouring properties. You can also view the weekly lists of applications that have been registered and determined online.
