DARTMOOR National Park is asking regular visitors for views on introducing an annual parking pass.

The authority wants to hear from people who regularly visit Dartmoor about whether they would support any introduction of an annual pass.

The pass would support Dartmoor National Park’s important conservation work, helping to keep Dartmoor special now and for future generations.

The survey asks people whether they would be willing to buy a £35 annual pass which could be used all year round for Dartmoor National Park-owned car parks at Haytor, Postbridge and Meldon Reservoir.

Andrew Watson, head of recreation, access and estates for Dartmoor National Park Authority, said: ‘UK national parks are free for everyone to enjoy.

‘Here on Dartmoor, people can explore 450 miles of trails, 160 tors and see history through the ages dating right back to the Bronze Age.

‘When we consulted with communities on the plans to introduce fees at our car parks at Haytor, Postbridge and Meldon Reservoir we had useful feedback about an annual parking pass.

‘We now want a more detailed understanding and evidence about the level of interest. You can get involved by completing a short questionnaire. It will only take a couple minutes to fill in so please get involved. Your feedback will help us gather evidence and shape our approach in the future.’
