Safeguarding is everybody’s business. Everyone at The Dartington Trust is expected to have a ‘zero tolerance’ approach to harm and abuse. All staff should be prepared to recognise and respond if they suspect this is occurring. By law, certain groups of people are protected by safeguarding legislation. At Dartington we apply these principles to everyone whether or not they have additional protection in law.

As a customer of Dartington, if you have any concerns about the safety or wellbeing of anyone on the estate, please bring it to the attention of any member of staff.

We specifically ask that children and adults at risk are accompanied at all times by a responsible adult in our venues and on estate grounds.

Dartington Trust Land is Private Property and is strictly for the parking of motor vehicles when complying with the Trust’s Parking Terms & Conditions shown below and the Operational Policies for Car Parking.

No vehicle may park in an area that is cordoned off with the use of traffic cones or barriers. Vehicles must not park in areas which may cause an obstruction, including within the zigzags of/or on a pedestrian crossing.
It is important to the effective management of the car parks that all vehicle drivers comply with all signs within the car parks. Vehicle drivers must comply with all verbal or written instructions issued by authorised officers of TPS or the Dartington Trust in respect of parking of their vehicles.
It is the permit holder’s responsibility to keep Dartington Trust updated with any car number plate registration changes.

Failure to comply with these Terms & Conditions and the car parking policies means that you are contractually agreeing to pay a £100 parking charge within 28 days. The Parking Charge Notice will be reduced to £60.00 if payment is received within 14 days. Failure to pay the charge in full within 28 days will result in the charge increasing. TPS also reserves the right to transfer collection of this charge to a third party. This may incur additional charges. Please note: failure to pay a Parking Charge Notice, once issued, will result in the vehicle keeper’s details being requested from the DVLA. Please note that any dispute, appeal or complaint arising as a result of a PCN must be directed to TPS.
TPS and the Dartington Trust accept no liability for vehicles parked in their car parks or grounds.
