    Yorkshire dales staff cuts

    Post  rikidooos on Sun Feb 06, 2011 11:25 am

    Grassington, 4 February, 2011.

    Public consultation begins today (February 4) on the draft budget plans to reduce the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) work programmes following Government cuts.

    Members of the YDNPA yesterday agreed a draft budget that contains a raft of proposals including 15 voluntary and three compulsory redundancies, the scrapping of 12 work programmes and a reorganisation of the Authority’s structure to meet the demands of the reduced budget.

    Now members of the public, local communities and organisations are being asked to comment on the draft budget.

    Chairman Carl Lis said: “We are facing a reduction in our grant from Government, excluding the impact of inflation, of £1.43m or 25.3 per cent over the next four years. Once inflation is added into these figures, the actual cut is nearer £1.9m or 31 per cent.

    “The Authority is legally responsible for conserving and enhancing the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the National Park and for promoting opportunities for understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the area by the public. We also recognise the huge economic impact the National Park has on the area, locally and regionally

    ”This reduction in our budget has meant that we have had to rethink drastically our role now and in the immediate future and, unfortunately, it will mean staff redundancies and the scrapping of some of the work we do so that we can continue to provide our key services to a high standard.

    “The Authority has carefully considered a range of options and developed proposals that would meet the required budget cuts, while trying to deliver the statutory purposes of a national park authority.

    “Now we want to hear what the public thinks about the proposed changes to our services, and the impact they may have on the environment, local communities, and the use and enjoyment of the National Park via an online consultation survey.

    “All comments received by 10am on 10 March will be taken into account before the final financial decisions are taken by Authority Members on 29 March.“

    The YDNPA has set up a web page containing the consultation survey and links to the content of the draft budget at www.yorkshiredales.org.uk/budgetconsultation.
