The Management Plan for the National Park is called 'The Partnership's Plan'. This is because it has been developed by many members of the Lake District National Park Partnership.
Part 3 How we are going to realise the Vision - sections below:
The Partnership's Plan (The Plan) incorporates suggestions and comments from other organisations and individuals who are not formally part of the Partnership. These were gathered in the Summer 2010 consultation stage. View them in Comments on the Partnership's Plan (PDF)
The Partnership first approved The Plan on 7 September 2010. You can view details of all the past Partnership meetings online.
The Plan is now 'live' and happening. The Partnership has committed to reviewing the actions contained within it every year.
The actions are subject to a sustainability appraisal to identify any potential negative outcomes on the environment, economy or community: Sustainability Appraisal of the Partnership's Plan 2010-2015 Actions 2011 (Word document)
The Plan is only current at the time it was written. Many factors will affect and influence the accuracy of content, decisions of all the Partners and the actions within it. Monitoring progress on the Plan's delivery is therefore essential.
We review the plan every year. This allows us to adjust priorities and approaches when faced with new factors such as significant changes in financial circumstances.
The Lake District National Park will lead the review, monitoring and reporting of the Plan working with the Partnership's Plan Sub Group.
These give an update on progress on all the actions in the Partnership Plan. The Partners leading each action provide an update on delivery of the action and assign a status to each action, based on:
Completion dates for actions can be altered if unforeseen problems arise. These are captured in the monitoring reports.
For the monitoring reports for previous iterations of the Partnership's Plan, please email email@example.com.
The risks to delivering the Plan need to be understood and managed. The Partnership's Plan sub group will regularly consider how the risks are managed as part of the monitoring and review process.
The Partnership's Plan sub group will review the performance indicators in the Plan annually, especially in light of changes by Government and availability of the relevant data.
Each June the Partnership will receive an update on all monitoring activity, including actions, data for performance indicators and updates on risks to delivery. This will provide the context for the Partnership Plan sub group to lead the annual review of the Partnership Plan, in particular the actions. This review of the Partnership's Plan will help us address issues that arise, whilst remaining on course towards achieving our Vision. Each year the Partnership will decide their priority actions. The priorities for 2014-2015 are:
An updated version of the Partnership's Plan will be published each year, as well as:
The Lake District National Park Partnership is currently in the process of reviewing the Partnership's Plan. This new Partnership Plan will set out how the partners with work together to proactively and effectively manage the Lake District as a National Park and as a prospective World Heritage Site. The Plan will provide the overarching strategy for the Lake District, setting out what is special, what results we're aiming for and our approach to making these results a reality. The Partnership have been working hard on producing a draft of this, using a wide range of current and shared awareness of what's going on and what matters. Soon we want to share this with you and hear your thoughts too. Please note therefore that a full six week public consultation is planned from 3 November 2014 to 18 January 2015.
