Want to support an E-Petition on wild-camping in England/Wales? on 03/16/2008 15:22:10 MDT Print View

For those unaware but interested in getting involved there's an E-Petition currently seeking support on the 10 Downing Street website:

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/wildcamp/#detail

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to legalise wild camping in England and Wales
Currently without the landowners consent it is illegal to wild camp on the moors, mountains, National Parks and MOD land. It is time to give people the same rights as those given North of the Border in Scotland to allow them to wild camp in these places without threat of legal action"

It was listed earlier in Feb and will need all the votes it can if it is to get any serious credence.

Deadline to sign up is 24 May 2008, and you must be a British citizen or resident to sign (It's quite quick and simple to do)

Please spread the word if you wish - it will need all the support it can get if it's to at least get those in power interested

Whatever your view on UK Gov's E-Democracy ideas - if its not used then nothing will happen.

Thanks for reading this

Darren great work in getting support for the right to wild camp south of Scotland. We have a raw deal compared to our fellow UK citizens in Scotland when it comes to enjoying the hills and high moors.
