Legal action against the Lake District National Park Authority

Legal action against the Lake District National Park Authority

News item dated Monday 9th December 2019

The Lake District National Park Authority (LDNPA) is refusing to use Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) to protect two green lanes in the Little Langdale area. They have done this despite overwhelming evidence that TROs are needed, a petition signed by over 350,000 people and the views of UNESCO, the National Trust, the Ramblers and the Wainwright Society.

The damage that 4×4 vehicles can cause

The national organisation that campaigns against off-roading, the Green Lanes Environmental Action Movement (GLEAM), has taken counsel’s opinion on the legality of LDNPA’s decision not to use TROs and has started legal action against the Authority.

GLEAM needs help with its legal costs and has launched a fund-raising campaign.

If you would like to support GLEAM, and we hope you will, please click HERE to go to their Crowd Justice fundraising page.
