Know before you visit

Here are some tips to remember whilst you're out and about in our beautiful area on how we can all look after people, businesses, the environment, our communities and make sure we're taking responsibility for our actions!

1. Respect our local communities.

  • Always park responsibly and only in designated areas.
  • Do not trespass on private land.
  • Take your litter with you or put it in a bin.
  • Be considerate to local residents and businesses.

2. Help us to protect our local wildlife and the breathtaking scenery.

  • Always be careful if you're heading out in to the countryside as much of the landscape is home to animals, from insects and butterflies to sheep and cows.
  • Always keep dogs on leads and clean up after them.
  • Put your rubbish in the bin or take it home with you.
  • Discarded cigarettes and glass bottles can cause a fire - make sure you dispose of them properly.
  • Leave the BBQ at home! Any open fires are NOT permitted in the Peak District National Park and we have a Public Space Protection Order in place banning BBQ's, wildfires, fireworks and Chinese lanterns throughout High Peak.
  • Stick to the Public Right of Way.
  • Wild camping (anywhere outside of designated camp sites) is only allowed with landowner permission!

If you're out in the countryside and see a fire be a FIRESTOPPER! Contact Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service on 0800 169 5558 or visit and report it anonymously - you could make a difference.

3. Plan ahead.
