How We Make Decisions
The South Downs National Park Authority is run by a board of 27 Members:
- 7 are appointed by the Secretary of State through an open recruitment process
- 6 are nominated by Parish/Town Councils or Parish Meetings within the National Park
- 14 are appointed by each of the 15 local authorities covering the National Park area (Adur and Worthing have opted to share a place).
The vast majority of decisions are made by Members either at Authority Meetings or Committee Meetings.
