Tay Forest National Park - FAQs

Farming bales of hay with mountain scenery

For residents and businesses

How would a National Park change planning controls?

This depends on what happens if our bid proceeds to the reporter inquiry stage.  A model similar to the Cairngorms National Park, with call-in planning powers only, could be appropriate.


For wider P&K

How would a National Park affect the other parts of Perth and Kinross?

There would be benefits in terms of tourists visiting towns on the routes approaching the National Park, and to Perth city as a base for visiting the Park.


For visitors

How would a National Park affect visitor management?

A National Park Authority would be able to work across boundaries with the neighbouring national parks to coordinate visitor management in matters such as sustainable transport.


For nature

How would a National Park benefit nature and tackle climate change?

A National Park authority would be able to support projects in woodland creation and nature restoration.
