Sam Winter made this Freedom of Information request to National Parks UK
This authority is not subject to FOI law, so is not legally obliged to respond (details).

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Association of National Park Authorities,

Is there a database of National Parks within the UK? This would include things such as contact details/people in charge. If so how do I gain access to this?

Yours faithfully,

Sam Winter

Dear Association of National Park Authorities,

It has come to my attention that I have still not received a response from my original question. By law, the authority should have responded yesterday, but this was not the case. Please can you respond!

Yours faithfully,

Sam Winter

Andy John,

Hi Sam - thanks for your email

The UK Association of National Park Authorities are not bound by the Freedom
of Information requests - here is our stock response:

According to section 1 of the FOIA:

"Any person making a request for information to a public authority is
entitled to be informed in writing by the public authority whether it
holds information of the description specified in the request"

Therefore, only public authorities are subject to the FOIA. The UK
Association of National Park Authorities is not a public authority under
the Act.

In answer to your question though, there is no central database containing
the contact details of each member of staff, although a good hunt on our
website should find most, if not all, of the information you require.

Try here -

and here -

Is this the kind of thing your after?

Hope this helps - Andy
