Most services operational during strike
Most Peak District National Park Authority services to the public are operational during a two-day strike by local government officers’ union UNISON on July 16-17.
However the impact of the strike means it may not be possible to give a full service to people who call in or phone to speak to a planning officer. People who do not have to call this week about planning matters are advised that they are likely to get a better service if they wait until after the strike.
Other services used by the public are mainly unaffected. All national park offices are open, and a normal service maintained in visitor and cycle-hire centres, and in customer services.
The same applies to the national park’s Losehill Hall environmental learning and conference centre in Castleton, and ranger centres.
The situation could be subject to late change however, and people are advised to call Customer Service on 01629 816200 or e-mail email@example.com if they are making a special journey.
The 48-hour strike, which affects England, Wales and Northern Ireland, is over a
2.45 per cent pay offer.
