Discussions have taken place with the national park authorities in recent months on the impact of the spending cuts. Officials are currently looking at how the overall reduction in Defra's budget will impact on individual spending programmes, including the grant which is given to the national park and Broads authorities. It is proposed to announce the individual grant settlements for each of the authorities when the local government funding announcements are published.
