The Partnership is governed by an independent Chair and a strategic Board consisting of senior decision-makers and industry leaders. These individuals cover various sectors and concerns with an interest or influence focused on the natural environment at a county level. The Board agrees and oversees the strategic direction and objectives of the partnership, whilst their advocacy, knowledge and connectivity support the GLNP to deliver and advise on matters relating to the natural environment and public policy.  The Board meets six times a year. If there is anything you would like to raise with the Board, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
