This chapter examines New Labour's handling of National Park policy in Great Britain by explaining the impacts of policy change and institutional reform since 1997. It describes the nature of National Park Authorities (NPAs) and considers the policy and institutional changes that have impacted on the work of NPAs since 1997. The chapter discusses the disjunctures between the government's approach to sustainable rural development and the idea of National Parks, and highlights the need to rethink the function of National Parks.
