The Wooller report made recommendations for amending the model for allocating National Park and Broads Authority Grant. We have already taken forward its recommendation to introduce a baseline of £1 million per park into the funding model. We began implementing the revised funding model in 2004–05 and 2005–06. However budget pressures have prevented further movement in this direction. The position will now be reviewed in the Comprehensive Spending Review.
The report also made recommendations on corporate planning. Officials are discussing with the National Park Authorities how these can best be implemented.
