The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park was established in July 2002 under The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Designation, Transitional and Consequential Provisions (Scotland) Order 2002. The aim of Scotland's National Parks is to deliver better management of areas of outstanding natural and cultural heritage. They aim to: conserve and enhance the natural and cultural heritage, promote the sustainable use of natural resources of the area, promote understanding and enjoyment (including enjoyment in the form of recreation) of the special qualities of the area by the public and promote sustainable social and economic development of the communities of the area. This dataset is the boundary referred to in The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Designation Transitional and Consequential Provisions (Scotland) Order 2002. Legislation provides that boundary changes have to be consulted on and made through an appropriate SSI. Ministers would propose the change and the Scottish Parliament would make the decision. This is not envisaged to be a frequent process.
