Statement on Organisational Restructure at the Peak District National Park Authority
Friday 10 February 2023
A Peak District National Park Authority spokesperson said: “With a long-standing ‘flat cash’ government grant settlement that is also expected to continue for the next two years, coupled with the organisation-wide impact of unprecedented levels of inflation, the Peak District National Park Authority is currently reviewing its operational structure.
"As part of this process, the Chief Executive has this week shared internally with staff a number of options to explore re-shaping the Authority to ensure the organisation remains resilient and sustainable in an increasingly challenging financial situation.
"The review of operational structure also aims to ensure the Authority has the right resources in place, including potential changes within its workforce, to focus on activities that will safeguard the future of the Peak District National Park including climate change, nature recovery and supporting those who live, work in and enjoy the area.
"An ongoing process of engagement with staff will take place to help develop proposals prior to formal consultation, with final decisions on areas of the organisation affected by the options being considered brought to Members of the Authority in July.
"Operations, services and activities currently being delivered by the National Park Authority will not be affected during this time. Any further information on how Authority operations may be impacted will be shared when confirmation can be provided.”
