Working with the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority and Monmouthshire County Council

Bannau Brycheiniog

We’re so fortunate in our region to have such supportive local authorities, the Brecon Beacons Natonal Park and Monmouthshire County Council.

Both recognise the central place that a new food system must have in a sustainable low-carbon future.

We’ve been contributing to the National Park’s new management plan, which is likely to envisage a substantial increase in small-scale farming for local markets. And in Monmouthshire, we’re a member of the Sustainable Food Partnership. Through this we’d like to work with others on issues that are of great importance but which we cannot tackle alone. For example, we’d like to address the role of local food in ameliorating food poverty, how we educate children to understand food better, and how to supply local food to the public sector.

We’ll report regularly on our collaboration with both authorities and invite our stakeholders to join in the conversation.
