The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority can’t achieve National Park purposes on its own, and many organisations have a duty through the Environment Act 1995 to contribute to National Park purposes in their own operations.
The Management Plan is a way of coordinating that effort: it is a plan for achieving National Park purposes, not just a plan for the Park Authority. And while the Authority produces the Management Plan, many other people are involved in its preparation, and are essential to its delivery.
The policies in the Management Plan are offered as operational objectives for the many organisations and individuals whose actions may influence the National Park.
