Information and documents

The Peak District National Park Authority is consulting on a proposal to make a traffic regulation order in different terms to the proposed order to permanently exclude mechanically propelled vehicles along Washgate, a 1.5km route near Hollinsclough. The proposed modification would exempt named motorcycle trials from the provisions of the order.

A detailed explanation of why the Authority is proposing to make a permanent traffic regulation order in different terms to that published and consulted on in March 2016 is set out in the Statement of Reasons (Document 2 below). The order, statement of reasons for the order and map showing the extent of the proposed restriction are also provided for background.
