Welcome to the official Legalise Wild Camping Petition Site.
“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.”
What we have with this petition is a starting point. A chance to debate, and define what is fair access to open countryside to allow wild camping. The petition isn’t asking to allow people to camp in lay bys, fields of crops or peoples gardens. It’s asking for the assumption that if you follow the rules (to be defined) then the assumption is that you have permission to be there. Break those rules, then you are not wild camping, and open to prosecution.
