    Peak District National Park Authority plans to close 25 of the best green lanes in the park by use of TROs

    The Peak District National Park Authority plans to close 25 of the best green lanes in the park by use of TROs. The two described below in an extract from the PDNPA press release are just the first on the list.

    “The Long Causeway crosses the spectacular Stanage Edge, following a route between Redmires and Hathersage. The Roych track is part of the Pennine Bridleway, a national trail dedicated principally to horse-riders, but is also used by cyclists and walkers.”

    If you have any interest in preserving these lanes for vehicle use, then we need you, PLEASE, to send a few simple comments to the Peak Park by 2 November 2012 by e-mail at:

    BOTH long.causeway@peakdistrict.gov.uk AND roych@peakdistrict.gov.uk

    For maximum effectiveness please keep your comments brief but please include the following:

    “The action by the Peak District National Park Authority to attempt to manage legal recreational vehicle use by closing rights of way and unsealed lanes is highly discriminatory to one minority group of users and visitors. This is directly against the Park’s own strategy of welcoming all users to enjoy diverse recreational activities.”

    You could also question whether spending, as they plan £100,000 on banning us is sensible, or whether the cash could be better invested in maintaining the routes for all to use. The National Park spends a fortune repairing paths that have been worn out by walkers.

    Remember that hundreds of trail riders gave up their bank holiday to protest against this: an action that was widely reported in the media. Now it’s your turn to show your support, so please take a few minutes to send an email.
