Peak District ban on off roaders

A LEGAL order has been made banning recreational trail-bikes, quad-bikes and 4x4s from a Peak District National Park country track for 18 months.

The Peak District National Park Authority announced in June that it was planning to make an Experimental Traffic Order at Chapel Gate, a country track between Chapel-en-le-Frith and Edale.

A legal notice has now been made which means no recreational motor vehicles can use the route from August 31 until the end of February 2013, towards the end of which time a decision will made on whether to make a permanent ban.

The trial ban affects a 3km route which skirts Rushup Edge and runs along a high ridge crossing a landscape of the highest international importance for its wildlife and natural beauty in the Peak District.
