The performance of the Yorkshire Dales National Park has been highly praised in a new report.

The review team spent a week in the Dales in November and spoke to supporters and critics, users of the park’s services, and organisations it works alongside.

The report concluded that work on conservation and in promoting understanding and enjoyment by visitors were delivered “to a very high standard.”

Chief executive David Butterworth said: “I’m particularly pleased that the report highlights our track record.”
