The Parish Council recently asked the Forestry Commission (FC) for free parking for local residents at Haldon Forest in view of the proposal to make roads around the forests an ‘Urban Clearway’. Once the Clearway is implemented there will be no roadside parking across much of the area. The FC appreciates local residents this may inconvenience local people if they have previously parked on the roads here and also that many regular local users may not want to pay full parking charges. Whilst the FC is unable to offer free parking, they pointed us to the FC Discovery Pass - known ‘Haldon Forest Park Membership - which allows unlimited access at Bullers Hill (as well as to the car park at Bellever on Dartmoor) for a fixed annual fee of £38.00. We understand that if you time the application carefully you can get nearly 13 months cover, since as the pass runs until the end of the month in which you apply. The membership also provides a number of other benefits, including discounts in the café.
