Our people

Our members and staff work to protect and enhance the New Forest.

Our people

The National Park Authority is governed by members, who have overall responsibility for making decisions, setting the direction of the organisation and ensuring objectives are achieved through the effective use of resources. The 22 members act in the interests of the National Park as whole, representing both the local and national perspective. We have a team of staff employed in a wide variety of roles from planning officers to ecologists, building conservation experts and rangers.
