Enshrine in law rights to roam and wild camp in national parks

Petition Details

Pass legislation to protect people's right to enjoy nature, and prevent it being restricted by landowners, who we believe should not really be allowed to own land within national parks. National parks should be for all, and not turned into a commodity.

Additional Information

To allow future generations the opportunity to experience and appreciate the natural beauty of this country's national parks. Too many people have little to no experience outside of highly polluted walkways and paths, with little to no opportunity to see the beauty of the night sky. Many children have not seen the night sky in absence of light pollution before. The recent overturning of the right to roam on Dartmoor in favour of the privileged is unfair, and will only reduce these opportunities.
