THIS has been circulated to all TRF members via email.
But there's no reason why non TRF members should not act on it too.
Sent on behalf of Robin Hickin, National TRF Rights of Way Officer
The Peak Park Authorities have proposed a permanent TRO which will ban motorcycles, quad bikes, and 4 wheel drives on two classic lanes in Derbyshire, Long Causeway, better known as Stannage Edge, and the Roych – see www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/consultations
It is vitally important that you register your opposition to these proposals.
Following on from the TRO on Chapelgate, it is obvious that the plan of the Authority is that, by stopping us riding individual lanes, it makes it more difficult to connect up a decent ride. If they succeed, more routes will follow so that, effectively, trail riding in the whole of the Park will dwindle to nothing. Two further lanes; Brushfield - Upperdale and Cherpit Lane are next in line.
This is a model that has already been successfully implemented in the Yorkshire Dales so they know it works!
The deadline for getting your objection in is the end of this week; the 2nd November, so please act now.
You can find a template to complete http://www.trf.org.uk/resources/trf-...007-peak-park-
At the very least please put your name, address and date on the letter, sign it and send it off, if you can personalise it yourself so much the better but the important thing is that you do something and please do it now.
