"The Authority currently has 166 voluntary rangers but is looking to increase the teams that cover the south and north of the national park – areas such as Rosedale, the Esk Valley and the coastal parishes between Loftus and Scarborough. Duties are carried out on weekends and bank holidays with some optional mid-week work at the National Park's mobile display units."


Please note if you fancy paid work for the NYMNPA then volunteering is the fastest route.  Also note it is unclear or unknown if a Uniform is provided and if or you have to provide your own weapons and artillery.  Still if the hat fits... and Uniforms are your 'thing' then apply now ....  More information and an application form is available at www.northyorkmoors.org.uk/caring/volunteers or by calling 01439 772700.Power Rangers

NYMNPA - Seeks New Members


The search is on for someone to join the North York Moors National Park Authority’s team of Members – an influential group of people who play a major role in shaping the direction of the Authority. The appointment will be made by the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, The Rt Hon Elizabeth Truss MP and the closing date for applications is 2 November 2015.

Candidates will be expected to have a good awareness of the issues affecting National Parks generally and a clear understanding of National Park purposes. Significant senior professional expertise in one or more of the following sectors: marketing and finance; cultural heritage, would be a particular advantage but not essential.

The National Park Authority’s 20 Members are responsible for big decisions on the North York Moors’ strategic management including wildlife, archaeology, education, planning, recreation and communications. Five of the Authority’s Members are ‘National’ Members appointed by the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. The remainder are elected by parish councils and local authorities within the North York Moors.

The appointments will start in April 2016 and are initially for up to four years with the possibility of re-appointment for a total period of up to eight years. The position is unsalaried, although an allowance and expenses are provided. Members are asked to commit between two and three days a month to Authority work.  Applications are particularly encouraged from members of ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, women and young people but the final decision will be purely on merit.

Jim Bailey, Chair of the North York Moors National Park Authority, said:

“Members play a key role in setting policies and priorities for the National Park Authority and ensuring that money is well spent. There is no denying that our new recruits join us at a challenging time in our history, but there is also much to be positive about including the new developments at Sutton Bank National Park Centre and our quest to generate more income from new sources.”

Application forms and further details are available online at publicappointments.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/appointment/national-park-authorities-members/

The Decision Notice from the North York Moors National Park Authority ("the Authority"), which formally grants planning permission for the Company's mine and mineral transport system application, has been issued by the Authority and is with the Company.

The receipt of the Decision Notice is the formalisation of a major milestone for the Company and is the conclusion of over four years' work in the planning process.  Throughout this time the Project, which is expected to create over 1,000 jobs at full production, has enjoyed wide ranging support from business groups, parish councils, the local community, education providers, MPs, local enterprise partnerships and tourism groups.

As set out in its investor presentation (available on the Company website), Sirius is currently finalising its Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") which remains on track for completion this quarter.  The Project now has all the planning approvals it needs to commence construction and is also continuing value engineering work with a number of contractors in order to prepare for future construction.  The Company's financing strategy is also advancing and the first phase is planned to be put in place during Q1 2016.

Chris Fraser, Managing Director and CEO of Sirius, comments:

"We are delighted to be through this key approvals process and to now be moving into the delivery phase of this world class Project.

"On behalf of everyone at Sirius, I want to thank the thousands of people who have supported the Project to date and we look forward to beginning construction during 2016."
