Proposals have been put forward in Dartmoor, which could result in the ban of camping wild in some regions of the park in addition to the overnight stay in caravans, as well as groups having barbecues, a report said.

These activities may be prohibited as part of a new set of restrictions to protect Dartmoor National Park’s distinctive characteristics.

The current set of bylaws for regulating access to the commons has been in force since 1989, with a few of them outdated.

The bylaws exist to safeguard the wildlife of Dartmoor National Park, its ecosystems, cultural heritage, and archaeology.

Dartmoor National Park Authority members have voted to create plans to revise the bylaws to reflect the needs of today.

This involves enhancing public understanding and dealing with issues that could potentially harm the unique qualities of the National Park.

The review begins on September 20th and will ensure that the bylaws are current and appropriate to the region.

They should also be easy to comprehend, specific, cover the correct areas and activities, and add to other legislation and powers.

One of the possible changes is to prohibit people with no sufficient reasons to ride, drive, or propel any pedal-driven vehicle or motor in any area of Access Land other than on highways.

Caravans could also be affected by the amendments made to bylaws.

Between 9 pm and 9 am, no one shall reside or lie in any motorized vehicle such as a trailer or caravan within Access Land.

Drivers will also be prohibited from parking any motor-powered automobile within Access Land, which could impede traffic flow for agricultural purposes or livestock.

Anyone who violates the bylaws may be subject to a fine at level 2 of the Standard Scale (£ 1,000).

There is an additional penalty for each day that the violation continues following the conviction in an ongoing offense.

The consultation, which begins on September 20th it will be up for six weeks.

The next step is that the Authority will convene again to discuss responses, decide on necessary changes, and officially accept the bylaws.

Then, they’ll be sent to Defra to be confirmed to have these new rules to be in effect by the summer of 2022.
