Monitoring the success of the Management Plan is essential to inform future actions, policy and management decisions. The focus will be two-fold :
- monitoring outcomes in relation to progress towards the Vision and Ambitions (see Indicators and Targets document 2016) and
- monitoring delivery of the action plans.
A good baseline has been established through the State of the Park report (2010), and this will continue to be updated periodically to provide data on outcomes. During this Plan period there will also be a focus on increasing community involvement in monitoring, such as encouraging local wildlife or conservation groups to feed in the data they collect and a greater sharing of information and knowledge. Progress against delivery of the action plans will also be monitored annually to enable them to be updated as necessary.
An updated State of the Park Report was published in 2017 State of the Park 2017
The Management Plan is for Dartmoor, Your Dartmoor. If there is a way that you can contribute to its delivery, then please let us know.
