THE Peak District National Park is having to “reshape services” after government cuts.
They face a 28.5% budget cut over the next four years.
But park chiefs have formed an action plan to save more than £446,000 in 2011-12.
The Peak District National Park includes parts of Holmfirth and Meltham.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said its grant for the Peak District National Park would be cut from £8.2m in 2010-11 to £6.5m by 2014-15.
The authority’s total budget for 2010-11 is just over £12m, including income from sources such as car park charges, retail sales, rentals and work commissioned by other organisations.
Jobs will have to go, with one of the 19 ranger posts being lost. The Authority will no longer have an in-house design and photography service with the loss of three posts.
Losehill Hall in Derbyshire will also close, with 22 full-time equivalent posts lost through redeployment, redundancy or early retirement.
Authority chairman Narendra Bajaria said: “These are challenging times, and it is inevitable that some services will have to be scaled back, but we want the national park to continue as an exemplar for sustainable development and biodiversity and as a source of relaxation and well-being for people from all backgrounds”.
