Partnerships

We are proud of our longstanding relationship with the Peak District National Park Authority. For contact details and an overview of how this relationship works please read below.


The National Park

The National Park covers approximately one third of Derbyshire.

It employs its own rights of way officer who works with the national park's seven constituent councils to improve and maintain the rights of way network.

The national park's staff carry out a tremendous amount of work on rights of way and improving access as well as working with landowners to manage the many millions of visitors who want to enjoy this beautiful area.

We remain responsible for public rights of way in the national park area of Derbyshire (we are the highway and surveying authority for rights of way) so if you encounter any problems with the network please report them to us.

Please visit the Peak District National Park Authority website (opens in a new window) to learn more about its work.

We also work with other Derbyshire councils. Please visit our other councils page for more information about how to contact these councils.
