Campiagn to stop 4 x 4s and trail bikers

DEFIANT campaigners determined to protect a Peak District countryside route from 4×4 off-roaders are urging council chiefs to reconsider their decision to formally allow motorists to use it.


Friends of the Peak District (FPD) revealed Derbyshire County Council has announced that Long Causeway, at Stanage, is to be classified as a Byway Open to All Traffic.

The former packhorse route was unclassified, according to FPD, and has been a legitimate track for motorists but campaigners hoped a Traffic Regulation Order ban on off-roaders would be imposed.

Protesters claim 4×4 drivers and trail bikers are ripping up this lane and ruining the peace.

FPD had held a rally urging the county council and Peak District National Park Authority to ban off-roaders from tracks.

The group is also lobbying the county council to ban off-roaders from Bradley Lane, at Pilsley, and School Lane, at Great Hucklow.

Long Causeway is one of 27 green lanes identified by the Peak District National Park(PDNP) Authority as being in most urgent need of management and an action plan has been drawn up for it which can be seen at
