Coronavirus (COVID-19): Public events on Authority properties

Please be aware that due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic we will be reviewing event applications on a case by case basis taking into consideration:

  • Impact on special qualities
  • Capacity of the location to accommodate Covid safety measures for the general public and participants
  • Current Government restrictions
  • Impact on local communities and the general public using the locations

For events after Monday 6 September 2021 the Authority is removing the maximum limit for participants on Authority land. The removal of any limit will be reviewed and may be amended following any changes to the Government Covid-19 guidance.

All applications will continue to be carefully assessed for the safety of the general public and participants, and are not guaranteed to be approved. Our position on organised events will continue to be reviewed regularly in line with government guidance on Covid-19.

Your National Park is a protected landscape providing spectacular views, iconic wildlife, fascinating archaeology and beautiful moorland villages. From walking, fell running and climbing to air sports, cycling or simply enjoying peace and quiet reflection surrounded by nature, the area offers many opportunities for outdoor recreation that are beneficial to health and well-being.

Interest in such activities has grown enormously in recent years and an increasing number of commercial organisations and charities now organise large scale events within the National Park.
