State of the Park Report

State of the Park Reports describe the current state of, and the issues affecting:
•    the special qualities of the National Park;
•    how these special qualities are enjoyed and by whom;
•    and the economic and social well-being of National Park communities.

State of the Park Review 2010

A Review of the 2008 State of the Park Report has been carried out.  The Report has two key roles:

1. it complements the monitoring of the actions of the National Park Management Plan in order to assess whether the current plan is having the intended impact on the ground;
2. it provides an evidence base for key issues in the National Park, which will inform the review of the Management Plan.

The review has been undertaken with guidance from a State of the Park Focus Group made up of a cross-section of interest groups and organisations, which met in November 2010, and was presented to the Management Plan Delivery Board in December 2010.

State of the Park Review

State of the Park 2008

This report describes the condition or ‘state’ of the Dartmoor National Park in 2008. The report is structured around the ambitions of the recently adopted Dartmoor National Park Management Plan 2007-2012. These ambitions are designed to reflect the special qualities of the National Park. The evidence is based on time series data where available in order to describe change or trends. This evidence will act as a baseline for monitoring the progress of the National Park Management Plan.
