Ideas wanted to improve national park

Outdoor enthusiasts who regularly don their walking footwear and outdoor equipment to enjoy Dartmoor National Park are being urged to send in suggestions on how to improve the area.

The Dartmoor National Park Authority is currently asking for feedback on its new draft document released today, which outlines development management policies for the park to encourage sustainability.

It covers areas such as housing, traffic and tourism and shows how land in the park will be allocated up to 2026.

Phil Markham, head of forward planning for the Dartmoor National Park Authority, said: “It is really important to get as much public feedback as possible to ensure that this is a plan fit for the future of the National Park which takes into consideration the views of its communities.”

Dartmoor National Park contains a series of outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, climbing and horse-riding, for sporty individuals looking to exercise while visiting south-east England.
