Views sought about 4x4 and bikers ban

Have your say

A CONSULTATION exercise has been launched to ask whether trail-bikes, quad bikes and 4x4s should be permanently banned from two green lanes in the Peak District National Park.

It will run until November 2 and asks for views on proposed Traffic Regulation Orders to exclude motor vehicles from the Long Causeway - a 3.6km route between Redmires and Bamford - and the Roych, near Chapel-en-le-Frith.

The Peak District National Park Authority is making the proposals to try to reduce damage to the routes, which are used by walkers, cyclists and horse-riders.

Coun Garry Purdy, vice chairman of the authority’s audit, resources and performance committee, said: “We’re proposing these orders to safeguard what people value most about these areas, but we want to hear everyone’s views and will make a final decision after feedback.”
