Our vision for the future of the Broads is set out in the Broads Plan which is a long term strategy for managing this very special part of the national park family.
The Broads Authority's commitment is to:
Corporate governance comprises the cultures, values and processes by which government bodies operate to ensure they are doing the right things in the right way.
Defra's draft Structural Reform Plan published on 16 July 2010 delivered the coalition agreement commitment 'to review the governance arrangements of National Parks in order to increase local accountability'.
Although the majority of National Park Authorities have broadly similar governance arrangements, it was felt the most effective way to undertake the Review was for each Authority to consult locally on potential changes which would work best, whilst reflecting the status of the Parks as national assets.
The consultation invited comments from any organisation or individual who wished to respond. These responses were directed to Defra in the first instance, who forwarded copies to the relevant Authority for consideration. A special meeting of the Broads Authority was held on 15 February 2011 to consider these responses.
Hard copies of all consultation documents are available by emailing the National Parks governance review team at Defra.
In 2017 we chose to have a peer review conducted by the Local Government Association (LGA). You can read more on the peer review and download a copy of the findings here.
