THE PEAK DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK
Britain's first National Park has a special place in the hearts of millions of visitors - from surrounding towns and cities, the UK and all over the globe.
Its internationally-important and protected landscapes and wildlife mean different things to different people. For some it's a wild and wonderful setting for outdoor activities, including the many that enjoy walks in the Peak District National Park. Or there's cycling, abseiling and even yachting to enjoy. For others it's their favourite spot for a meal out - featuring fine local produce - with family and friends.

The Peak District National Park Authority is a public body made up of two groups of people - members and officers.
The members are the people who make decisions. They are responsible for setting policies and priorities, ensuring resources are well used and money is well spent.
The officers are employees who work to the policies and carry out the decisions made by members. On routine matters members ask officers to take decisions directly, in line with agreed policies and our customer service charter.
