Sustainable Tourism in Wales National Parks
12 July 2022

The challenges faced by National Parks in delivering their statutory purposes and duty

Where tourism attracts visitors, economic benefits, and educates the public, their presence can pose a risk to the protection of the cultural and natural sites in a National Park.

In 2021-22, the Auditor General published three reports on how each of Wales’ National Parks are responding to the challenge of managing and helping to deliver sustainable tourism.

This piece of work highlights some important common issues emerging from these reports, aimed at the Welsh Government when developing and setting national policy for National Parks.
