Green lanes set to be closed

Have your say

The Peak District National Park Authority is holding a public consultation over the possibility of permanently banning recreational motor vehicles and trail-bikes from two green lanes.

The authority’s audit, resources and performance committee decided to seek the public’s views on proposed Traffic Regulation Orders to bar recreational motorised traffic from Long Causeway, between Sheffield and Hathersage, and the Roych, near Chapel-en-le-Frith.

The move follows a lengthy period of monitoring which showed harmful impacts on the natural beauty and on other users, such as walkers and horse-riders, despite trying various intervention measures including information campaigns, voluntary restraint and repairs.

It is expected that the consultation will start in the autumn.
