all the various plans and schemes for the development and use of the park land. After several years’ planning and
discussion, the programme was
formally adopted on 18th August 1999.
areas of the park are divided into four types depending on their ecological
and environmental value.
“Integral” reserves: these are areas where the natural environment has remained
completely unspoilt and unchanged by human intervention. This type covers
about 37% of the whole territory and includes the following areas: Lobbia,
Seniciaga, Germenega, Fumo, Borzago, Brenta, Pietra Grande, Vallon and Ceda.
or general reserves: more elastic regulations apply to the preservation of
the environment in that some forestry work, grazing and farming is permitted
as well as some development for the tourist industry. This type of area
covers about 59% of the park’s territory, with the following comprising the
most important areas: Presanella, Tóvel, Campa, Bedole, southern Brenta,
western Brenta, upper San Valentino valleys , Fumo, Borzago and Breguzzo.
“Controlled” reserves: these reserves cover 3.6% of the park’s territory and include
areas where there has been some development of the tourist industry such as
Spinale, eastern Presanella and Pradel.
