Exmoor National Park Authority

Exmoor was designated as a National Park in 1954. Since then, the co-ordination of work to achieve National Park purposes in the area has been undertaken by local government and since 1997 by a free standing Exmoor National Park Authority.

Exmoor National Park Authority decides what measures to take to achieve the two National Park purposes;

  • "To conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the National Park"
  • "To promote opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the National Park by the public"
