Alexander Darwall v Dartmoor National Park Authority
Right of access. Law of property act. Land without the consent of the landowner. National park. Wild camp“
The third aspect of the context was the reports and debates which led to the 1949 Act. Two reports of committees under the chairmanship of Sir Arthur Hobhouse were described by the responsible minister Lewis Silkin MP as having had a “very great influence” on the proposed measures which became the 1949 Act and said the Government had “accepted them as to some 90 per cent”.
At that time in 1980 (and 1984), there were evidently some authorised camp and caravan sites, as well as unauthorised sites set up by certain landowners and it is clear from the submissions and evidence put forward by DNPA (or its predecessor) in promoting the 1980 Bill, that the mischief which it was seeking to address was, amongst other things, such unauthorised or unregulated sites and the pressure and harm they caused, which needed to be regulated and controlled.
The first Hobhouse Committee report also identified a number of recreational activities such as motoring and cycling (essentially not permitted on the Commons by virtue of byelaw 3) fishing and rock climbing (both of which do take place on Dartmoor but it is unclear whether they take place on the Commons). It is noticeable that the recreational activities identified in the report do not include camping, which the report contemplated would be regulated and even that a fee would be payable.
The King (on the application of Ashchurch Rural Parish Council) v Tewksbury Borough Council
Construction of a new railway bridge. Application for planning permission. Environmental impact assessment. Link road“
On a fair reading of the OR, the Planning Officer did place substantial weight on the contingent benefits that, in his assessment, would accrue from the development in Phase 1, and he invited the Committee to do the same. His overall approach was to invite the Committee to attribute substantial or significant weight to the prospective benefits of the wider development whilst directing them that they must leave out of account entirely any possible harms.
These provisions implement article 1(1) of the Environmental Impact Assessment Directive 2011/92/EU (“the EIA Directive”). The Directive requires the effects of the “project” to be assessed; the reference in the EIA regulations to the assessment of the effects of the “proposed development” is intended to give effect to this: R (Larkfleet) v South Kesteven District Council  EWCA Civ 887,  Env LR 4 (“ Larkfleet”).
“Project” is defined in art 1 of the Directive as “the execution of construction works or of other installations or schemes” and “other interventions in the natural surroundings and landscapes”. The term has to be understood “broadly, and realistically.”
The identity of the “project” for these purposes is not necessarily circumscribed by the ambit of the specific application for planning permission which is under consideration.
