DALES AWARD: The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority has been awarded an Investors In People award for the 12th year running.

Authority chief executive David Butterworth said: “The IIP Assessor highlighted a number of strengths and good practice during her visit.

“She was impressed by the way staff have shown they can sustain performance during the on-going budget cuts and the sense of energy, drive and purpose.

“But we are not complacent – we know there are always areas where we can improve and make the Authority an even better place in which to work.”
