Petition to allow camping on farmland

24, May 2022

A petition is titled “Allow Camping on Farmland for 56 days a year under permitted development” is in circulation and can be found here.  If 10,000 signatures are obtained, the government will need to respond and at 100,000 signatures, the petition will be considered for debate in parliament.

The organisers of the petition comment: “We ask the Government to allow camping on agricultural land for 56 days instead of the current 28 days permitted.

“The present General Permitted Development Orders don’t even allow many campsites to open for the duration of the school summer holidays. A longer open period will allow many more people to enjoy holidaying in the UK, will increase the viability of temporary campsites, and should significantly reduce holiday carbon emissions.”
