Section 20: Advisory groups
62.National Park authorities are required by this section to put in place an advisory group or groups to advise it on its functions. The membership of the group is to be decided by the authority, who can also decide what allowances or expenses to pay members of the group. This section provides a mechanism for the views of the wide range of interest and community groups, and individuals, with a legitimate interest in the running of the National Park, to feed into the National Park authority. No constraints are placed on the size or membership of advisory groups.
