DNPA to use Dartmoor Commons Act 1985 to regulate camping
|The DNPA has used powers under the Dartmoor Commons Act (1985) to stop large numbers of people treating Bellever as an informal campsite & give the site time to recover. A camping ban comes into force on 7 August for 27 days. There have been unsustainable levels of anti-social behaviour with littering, human waste & fires causing damage to habitats & animals. The only type of camping allowed on specific parts of Dartmoor is backpack camping for 1 or 2 nights,carrying your tent & equipment in a rucksack, with zero impact on the environment.
