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.
