The plan for the Alta Murgia National Park and the Park Regulation regulate and control all the interventions linked with the territory utilization, the coordinate safeguard and development of the heritage of traditional naturalistic, environmental, historical, cultural and antropological values, as well as the presence ant the activity of the man. The project consists of a cognitive, interpretative, planning and policy part, which involves thr classification of the territory into 4 zones with a different safeguard system, in coherence with the art.12 of the Law n.394/1991. The classification in A, B, C,D zones, as well as the perimeter of contiguos areas, rises from an accurate analysis of the Alta Murgia territory, characterized by the presence of pseudosteppici and a pascolo environments, identity elements of the natural and lansdcape heritage of the Murgia, strongly inserted with agricultural surfaces,in order to constitute a variegated landscape mosaic.So the localization of the zones has been realized on the basis of the representativeness of the most significant ecosystems of the Park,of the level of anthropic, of the naturalistic value and the identification of the boundaries of the zoning on fixed elements of the soil. Here you find described the contents and the purposes of every zone.
The A Zone is destined for the conservation of the natural environment in its integrity with relation also to the permanence of peculiar forms of use of natural resources and of traditional human activities. Integral reserve areas have the most significant naturalistic value, the most similar ones to the natural equilibrium conditions, of great biogeographic interest.Among the areas classified in the A Zone we find:
- Highly sensitive aride mediterranean grasslands;
- - areas of rupestral vegetation;
- woods of evergreen Sclerophyllous ;
- carsic small lake pools of high environmental quality;
- caves with the presence of some species of chirpters of conservation interest;
- geological sites of elevated landscape quality.
In all, A ZONE covers an area of 5,827 hectares.
In the A Zone is permitted the ordinary maintenance of the existing trails and routes expected in the Project and the inclusion of safeguard systems of the present naturalistic values established by the Corporation;
The B Zone is destined for the safeguard of ecological equilibrium.The orientated general reserve zone are collocated in portions of the territory whose ecological and naturlistic arrangements suffer forestation activities or previous silvopastoral uses, now ceased, or practiced in a strongly extensive form, with modalities that contribute to the reaching and mainteinance of a sour ecosystem of great naturalistic and environmental value.Among the b zone areas we find:
- aride mediterranean grasslands;
- decidous and semideciduos broad leaved woods
- boschi di conifere; conifer woods
- laghetti carsici; carsic lakes
- caves with the presence of bats species of great conservation interest
- llamas of landascape and naturalistic value.
In all B zone covers an area of 24.642 hectares.
In this area productive traditional activities are allowed, and the realization of infrastructures strictly necessary for the same activities, and also the management interventions of the natural resources; the naturalistic botany interventions are allowed; it’s prohibited the construction of new manufactures and new building settlements, and the destination change of those existing.
The C Zone is destined for the promotion of traditional agriculture activities,of the integrated agriculture, of zootechnical farming, of agrosilvopastoral activities, of natural products collecting and the production of local traditional craft. Social assistance activities and farm treatments, of animal treatments, of tourist and hiking service, of didactic and environmental education are incentivized, as long as they are carried out in a integrated form and connected with the primary activities.
Among the areas classified in the c zone we find:
– rural settlements and manor farms.
In all C zone covers an area of 36.871 hectares.
In this zone are allowed: the realization of infrastrucure and land improvement interventions necessary to the same, and manegement interventions of the natural resources of the Corporation; the naturalistic forestry interventions, and the realization of structures for the wood arboricolture on the agricultural soils; the construction of new agricultural building settlements,used as services for the Park fruition.
The D Zone is directed to the maintenance and the reinforcement of the role of environmental and landscape connection, to the tourist promotion, of the public fruition and the cultural identity of local communities, and also to the development of economic sustainable activities. It covers the most strongly populated areas, the zones affected by intervention expectations for the social and economic development and the safeguard and valorization areas of the system of cultural and environmental goods.
D zone is divided into the following subzones:
– D1: expansion areas of the municipal urban plans;
– D2: environmental recovery areas of the extractive structures;
– D3: technological structures;
– D4: rural, tourist, sporting and recreative settlements;
– D5: equipments for the Park fruition and railway stations;
– D6: valorization areas of the historical- archeological and paleontological of the Alta Murgia: Castel del Monte e Cava dei Dinosauri;
– D7: areas concerned with programme agreements provided for by the art.9 comma 1 of the A attachement (Safeguard discipline) at the D.P.R.(President of the Republic Decree) 10/03/2004 of the Park institution.

The National Park regulation , on the basis of the art.11 of the Law n. 394/91, controls the principles, the forms and the modalities for the exercise of the activities and for the realization of the works and the interventions allowed in the Park Plan.
