From 12 April travel restrictions within the United Kingdom and Common Travel Area (UK, Ireland, the Isle of Man, and the Channel Islands) will be lifted.
The changes to the restrictions also mean up to six people from two different households to meet and exercise outdoors, while self-contained holiday accommodation will be able to reopen to people from the same household or support bubble.
If you are able to enjoy the National Park’s great outdoors under the current level of restrictions, we ask you to tread lightly. Follow the Countryside Code and leave only footprints.
The Authority’s headquarters remains closed to the public until further notice. Please visit the Contact Us section for details on how to contact Authority staff.

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 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.
Visiting Park Authority headquarters and visitor attractions
The Authority’s headquarters will be closed until further notice. For further details on alert levels please visit the Welsh Government website.
Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre is open but the main Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales gallery is currently closed. You can find contact details for staff below.
