The Vision

Dartmoor – an inspirational place where, in 2034:

  • the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage are conserved, sustained and enhanced;
  • local people and visitors enjoy and learn more about the National Park; and
  • local communities and businesses prosper and benefit from Dartmoor's human and natural resources.

The National Park is an exemplar in delivering a range of public benefits, and leading the way in developing new approaches and thinking.

The Vision is set around achievement of National Park purposes:

  • to conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage; and
  • to promote opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the area by the public.

And the duty to:

  • seek to foster the economic and social well-being of local communities within the National Park.
It contributes to the government's vision for National Parks in England.
