I have been told that a ranger recently informed a member of the public that the Broads is now officially a national park. While Defra and the High Court may have agreed that the term may be used for marketing purposes, the FACT remains that the Broads is not legally (nor officially) a national park.

What advice has been given to officers, members, general staff, and, in particular, those at the sharp end (rangers and Information Office staff) regarding informing members of the public about the truthful and actual status of the Broads?

Dear Paladine,

I would be surprised if a Ranger had given out that information. They have a very good understanding of the position.

I have sent a copy of the judgement to all Members and all members of staff. I have also briefed them on the fact that while the Broads is not legally a national park the High Court has supported the Authority's decision in using the term Broads National Park when describing the area for marketing purposes.

This week I have reinforced this message in a presentation to all members of staff. We will be preparing a note for Members, members of staff, our volunteers, members of Broads Tourism and the general public so they have an accurate understanding of the situation.

If you want to contact me privately with any more details I can make sure that this individual is fully familiar with the situation.

Regards

John

Thank you, JP. I didn't hear the comment myself, so I would not wish to take it further. My concern was what was being dissemination to staff, and you have answered that for me.
