Dartmoor Dynamic Landscape

Dartmoor Dynamic Landscape

Dartmoor’s Dynamic Landscapes is an area-based partnership programme for nature and people.

The programme has a landscape focus on three of Dartmoor’s river catchments - the Okement, the Dart and the Erme & Yealm. The rivers start on the peat bogs of the high moor, and they travel through grassland, wetlands and, flowing off the moor through wooded valleys and past the many riverside communities in the towns outside the National Park.

The programme aims to:

  • connect people to each other and to nature
  • support new work to conserve and enhance natural heritage
  • encourage low impact access to the landscape
  • help communities benefit from visitors and investment

The work we propose is set against a backdrop of rapidly changing needs and demands for land use.

The partnership is currently in the development phase.  This means we submitted an outline proposal for funding to the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF), they granted limited funding to allow Partners to consult on and work up detailed proposals.  This development work will culminate with a finished submission to the NLHF in August 2024. If successful, programme delivery will be from 2025 to 2030

During the development phase, we will be working with partners, stakeholders and local communities to develop a broad range of projects that benefit people and nature.
