Rejected petition Stop the Brecon Beacons being renamed.
The Brecon Beacons is home to a wealth of archaeology from prehistoric stone circles and burial chambers, Iron Age hillforts, Roman camps, Medieval castles and the remains of our industrial past.
Brecknock Beacons first occurs in the eighteenth century. Brecon Beacons is first attested in the nineteenth century.
The name is renowned throughout the world and will cost businesses dearly because of the undemocratic decisions makers in Cardiff Bay.
Why was this petition rejected?
It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.
Petitions to the Senedd cannot concern an issue that is the operational responsibility of a National Park and, therefore, we are not able to accept a petition on this issue.
Each National Park Authority is a free-standing body corporate and executive within the local government framework.
You could consider contacting local members of the national park authority, which can be contacted here: https://governance.beacons-npa.gov.uk/mgMemberIndex.aspx?bcr=1.
We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
