All of Wales has been placed at alert level 4 by the Welsh Government. This means that people must stay at home except for very limited purposes.
As a result the Authority has closed its headquarters until further notice. Please visit the Contact Us section for details on how to contact Authority staff.
Exercise should be undertaken locally and should start and finish from your home. If you are exercising in the National Park’s great outdoors, we ask you to tread lightly. Follow the Countryside Code and leave only footprints.

What do I need to do?
Know the latest guidance – check the Welsh Government website for the up-to-date advice.
Stay at home
Don’t travel without reasonable excuse
If you are exercising in the National Park please be kind and remember the three ‘R’s:
Respect the Land
Respect the Community
Respect each Other
Exercise should be undertaken locally – from home or as close as possible to the home. In general this should not involve people driving to a location away from home for this purpose. No journeys of any significant distance should be taken, for example, just in order to exercise in the countryside or at beauty spots.
People with specific health or mobility issues may, however, need to travel from their home in order to be able to exercise.
All National Park Authority-managed car parks are open. For more information visit our parking page.
Tread lightly in the Park
Please ensure you enjoy the outdoors responsibly and follow any on site advice and adhere to the Countryside Code.
Connect with nature virtually
You can still connect to the nature of the Park through our social media channels, our website and our online version of Coast to Coast.
Development Management (Planning) Service
The Authority’s Development Management service has continued to operate as far as practicable during the Coronavirus restrictions.
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.
The Development Management Committee will not undertake site visits while the Coronavirus restrictions are in place. Decisions by the committee will be based on the information supplied with an application and presented to them in reports, representations and other presentation.
Staff will not have access to the offices during this current lockdown period. 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.
