Dartmoor Commoners Council

THE FUTURE

The Commoners Council and the National Park Authority have formed an alliance with Natural England, English Heritage, Defra, Defence Estates and the Environment Agency. It has agreed a ‘vision’ for the conservation of Dartmoor to 2030. The vision is enshrined in a map. All parties will work to an agreed framework of action to conserve and enhance the landscape.

The vision is of an open but farmed landscape containing a mosaic of different types of vegetation and habitats, with fourteen Premier Archaeological Landscapes protected, and the vegetation managed by grazing livestock. Dartmoor’s blanket bog, which acts as a big sponge, will be managed to survive climate change as long as possible, thereby protecting water quality and quantity.
