How we work to look after the national park, conservation, ranger services, biodiversity and policies.
The Peak District National Park has about 300 green lanes. These are historic tracks that are used by walkers, cyclists, horse riders and motor vehicles. The use of some of these green lanes can be controversial – where the surface becomes damaged or different uses conflict with each other – and some use is illegal.
To improve how these lanes are managed, we have adopted a revised ‘Strategy for the Management of Recreational Motorised Vehicles in their Use of Unsealed Highways and Off-road’ and a revised ‘Procedure for Making Traffic Regulation Orders’.
The strategy emphasises the need to protect the special qualities of the national park. To do this we are:
Our action plans outline how we will carry out this work.
A number of different agencies and authorities are involved in managing the green lanes in the national park.
All users can reduce their impact on other users, the environment and local communities by using the lanes in a responsible and sustainable manner.
We encourage everyone to work with us to help us achieve long-term effective management of the green lanes in the national park and to control illegal use.
From time to time, we need volunteers to help maintain our green lanes. This work is carried out through Peak Park Conservation Volunteers. You can find out about forthcoming working parties in our vehicles newsletter.
