Dartmoor Commoners Council


We have taken the necessary & sensible decision to close our office to the public. Sara, our office administrator, will be working from home. For the time being, we would ask that all contact is made by email to office@dartmoorcommoners.org.uk or by telephoning 01822 618892. The telephone has been diverted to Sara's mobile phone. Therefore, please bear in mind that Sara's hours of work remain Mon-Fri 08:30am - 1:30pm. From everyone at Dartmoor Commoners' Council, please follow the Government guidance as best you can &, most importantly, stay safe.
