The National Park is a special place and planning has an important role in creating a more sustainable future for it. The National Park Authority provides for the needs of local communities whilst safeguarding and where possible enhancing the natural and built environment
The North York Moors National Park Authority is the statutory planning authority for the National Park. In consultation with the general public, it produces all the planning policies for the area in the North York Moors Local Development Framework and determines all planning applications within the Park boundaries. The Authority does not deal with Building Regulations which is provided by the North Yorkshire Building Control Partnership and Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.
