Peak district action

Peak & Derbyshire Vehicle User Group protest

Please join us on Sunday 21 April at 2.00pm in Edale.

We are planning to converge on Edale on Sunday 21 April at 2.00pm to provide a show of strength in a popular area, near to some excellent green lanes and to coincide (as near as possible) with the anniversary of the Kinder Trespass.

The Kinder mass trespass (http://www.kindertrespass.com/) was held on 24 April in 1932 and described by Roy Hattersley in 2007 as "the most successful direct action in British history." Perhaps we will need to resort to something similar to make our point. However, in the meantime, please join us in Edale - meeting in the public car park (grid ref: SK124 853) at 2.00pm. The usual Derbyshire car park charges apply: up to1 hr £1; 1-2 hrs £1.60; 2-4 hrs £3.00.

We will have our trailer hoarding to act as a focal point. If we can fill Edale and the surrounding area with 4x4s and bikes on a popular Sunday, then our presence and message will be seen by many who may not understand the issue. We are hoping to have leaflets available, explaining the green lane situation in the Peak District, to hand to anyone who shows an interest.

There will be no slow drive-around this time, but feel free to join us either by tarmac road or by making it part of your laning day out. There are 2 excellent pubs and a café at Edale. The Penny Pot Café is 20 yards away between the car park and the railway station. The Rambler Inn is adjacent to the car park and the Old Nags Head is a little further along the road to the start of the Pennine Way . Should we be overwhelm the main car park, there is an overspill car park at the railway station and more space beyond that, which is owned by Derbyshire County Council and used by Railtrack.

PDVUG.

Hope it went well?

Was thinking of making a visit to the Peaks if Chapel Gate is back open once more. Any other routes nearby worth a visit, from memory there are but I was being led last time......

Chapel Gate isn't open at the moment sadly - DCC (Derbyshire County Council) have a temporary TRO on it for more repairs to be carried out. The Peak Park are currently in the process of establishing a new permanent TRO on this route too :(

Hence, this missive from the TRF:

All is not totally lost because so far we have delayed implementation of closure to Stannage Edge and the Roych, reopened Chapel gate and delayed plans for nearly 18 months. So much so that the PDNPA have had to go cap in hand to get extra funding. When Chapel Gate goes to consultation we need 10’s of thousands objections going in. Each letter or email slightly different so they have to read and evaluate every single one.

The real issue is the fact that the ARP committee has had its instructions from higher up that makes the outcome a forgone conclusion, so we go further up the Food Chain. The Authority Committee chaired by the Leader of the Authority Councilor Tony Flavell. Sitting on this committee are a number of members appointed by local authorities and by the Secretary Of State for the Environment, Food and Rural affairs.

The next meeting of the Authority Committee meeting is the 24th May 2013. I propose that we should be there to put more pressure on these people, to remind them that we will not go away and to show that we are getting stronger and stronger.

If you want to continue riding or driving the Green Lanes of our Heritage you have to stand up and be counted. I am imploring you to take a day off work and be with us on Friday 24th May at


Peak District National Park Authority Offices,
Aldern House
Baslow Road
Bakewell, Derbyshire,
DE45 1AE

Meet in the Car park from 8.00am onwards.


It is vitally important as many Trail bikes and 4 x 4’s are there to show them that we are really angry……….target is 1000 because I know we can do it.

See you there
