National Parks rely on non-government funding
Posted on 4th February 2020
The North York Moors benefits from funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and other sources to ensure it fulfils its remit.
We're all aware that National Parks experience funding constraints (along with everything else in the public sector). An article in today's Yorkshire Post summarises how the North York Moors is coping with this, by receiving funds from external sources as well as direct from the government. Is it a problem? Probably not as long as the funding helps to fulfil the purposes of the National Parks, as described in the article - but we should be aware of the potential for 'mission creep', when aims can be dragged in different directions by funder preferences.
