Dartmoor ELM Test & Trial final report

Following a great deal of hours spent on consultation and meetings, with many individuals in the farming community giving up their time freely towards reaching a consensus, alongside a range of stakeholders - we are pleased to attach the final report generated from the Dartmoor ELM Test & Trial. This reflects and reports on the key findings as a direct outcome from the last two years of activity.


Thankyou to all those involved for your contribution, this would not have been possible without your valuable and informed input, which makes a tailored local approach exactly that; representative. For example ensuring farmers and landowners are directly involved in the co-production of future project planning and highlighting the need for a place-based approach that stresses the importance and uniqueness of Dartmoor and therefore how to optimise the potential from these local landscape attributes to shape and deliver the desired outcomes.


A special thankyou to Harriet Bell for managing and facilitating this process, pulling it all together and producing the final report.
