It's nice to see some positive results from a statutory body for a change. I've been a local government officer for 27 years and I know from experience that a lot of people in organisations will say no because it doesn't involve any work.

Natural England do have a tendency to get involved in things which are outside their remit, especially when they are giving out money. The new Environmental Stewardship scheme includes in the small print a clause banning metal detecting and ARCHAEOLOGICAL fieldwork on land covered by the scheme without asking them first. I won't repeat on here the exact words the borough archaeologist used when he found that some idiot had signed up to that without reading it. It's worth looking out for that when seeking permission though because it could cost the landowner a lot of money if he has to pay back grant aid because he has allowed detecting.

Another thing which may be contributing to bans is the governments 'Model Byelaws' which councils can ask for when looking for examples to us on their own sites. These include a reference to metal detecting. I think the way forward may be for responsible detectorists not to simply accept bans, in but to ask politely for the reason for the ban, which may be completely arbitary, because someone in authority doesn't like detectors.

Cheers, John

New forest district council`s reply to me for detecting on two local beaches

"In response to your earlier phone call, unfortunately we are unable to grant individuals the right to use metal detectors at Calshot and Leap. As a Council we could not allow individuals to keep the property they found on these sites and any licensing scheme would not be administrable."

Feeble excuses!!!

I am aware that I am late to the party on this one, but if anyone has the original email that granted the permission can you please send this to me in a PM

(I can see a few people have asked and may have received this)

I live in Gosport with Stokes Bay on my doorstep, haven't gone detecting yet as there are so many SSSI sites along the foreshore here (I even have one outside of my window!)

This email would really help me to get out there and get going, unfortunately I have no where to detect yet bar my garden and a beach half hour away so this would be a blessing to get me going!

Too add to that I have an old house that was next to a boat building yard, you cannot imaging how many nails I have in my garden x;

If you could let me know on the email that would be really great :)

Natashka - I too received a similar email in response to an enquiry in 2010. Here is what they said:

Thank you for your email regarding metal detecting in Portsmouth Harbour. As you are probably aware large parts of Portsmouth Harbour are protected because of its conservation importance.
I do not believe that your metal detecting is likely to cause harm to these sites. However there are a number of things you can do to reduce the impact that you will have and I’m sure that most of these are covered within your code of conduct.
Some habitats are more sensitive than others for example I would rather that you were not digging in areas of saltmarsh as these are particularly sensitive, areas of mud, sand and shingle are fine. I would also suggest that you try and avoid disturbing bird species who feed within the mud. If you could also infill any holes that are dug as this will allow for a rapid re-colonisation of the habitat.
I hope this is helpful advice and if you have any further questions please get in touch.
Many Thanks

A few club members and myself have quite often detected along Woolston shore and along the Hamble river and tributaries as listed on the Natural England SSSI maps (available on-line) I keep a copy of my Natural England licence and the original e-mail granting permission in my detecting bag... just in case :)

Re the OP, I wonder who the email is from ,
Conservation Advisor
South Hampshire and Isle of Wight

Is she from Natural England, County Council etc.? If there is a copy of the email I would very much appreciate it, thanks.
Its relevant to me being on the South Coast but also have an application in with my council. No reply yet?????? but delving into the interested parties, e.g. friends of this and that, wildlife groups, etc, its a nightmare.

Hi all,I am currently resident on the Isle of Wight and want to get things right!
I am new to this hobby and appreciate permission is required etc,I came across this post and it sounds ideal !
My question is this,is this still the case in 2017 ?
Also I have read on other posts about a natural England licence?
Is it possible to obtain one for me and where from.
Any other advice on sites either on the Isle of Wight or Hampshire areas I could visit legally,to start honing my skills ?
Many thanks to all Dave

You could contact them for their current stand as this original post is quite old.

I'm afraid you'll have to go to the I.O.W council as they give out their own licenses as I found out after taking the time to get all this sorted, I went to the I.O.W with my detector only to be told the council wasn't giving out permissions at this time, a waste of time and money! Good luck with getting permission, my opinion of them is a little jaded I must say.
