DARTMOOR NATIONAL PARK  - Car Parking Charges

The National Trust introduced car park charges for all visitors to the Park Estate.  The charge is a flat rate £2:00 and charges apply at all times and for all visitors, except National Trust Members.

The DNPA is now asking regular visitors for their views on a proposal to introduce an annual parking pass, available for residents and visitors to Dartmoor, for parks at Haytor, Postbridge and Meldon Reservoir where parking charges apply.

Please there share the following online survey with other in the community.  The authority would like to establish whether there is support for an annual pass.  The suggested cost would be £35 per year for the pass.  Income raised would be used to support the conservation work, erosion repairs and access projects. 

Complete the Annual Parking Pass Survey on the Authority's website:
