Steve Avery, Director of Park Services at the New Forest National Park Authority said: ‘As well as achieving savings for both organisations, the new arrangement will provide an integrated service across the whole of the New Forest district including the National Park.’
Councillor Paul Vickers, New Forest District Council’s planning and transportation portfolio holder, added: ‘The new arrangement is very similar to that operating today and ensures the continuing provision of a high quality service within the New Forest District Council area.’
