GLEAM takes legal action against LDNPA decision not to make traffic regulation orders. Read more below. And to help with our legal costs please go to https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/green-lanes-environmental-action/

Dec 2019

Fritz Groothues wrote about the campaign to save two green lanes in the Langdale area of the Lake District on page 2 of the GLEAM Spring 2018 newsletter at page 2. Since then over 350,000 people have signed the petition asking the Lake District National Park Authority (LDNPA) to make traffic regulation orders (TROs) on these routes, to stop the damage and intrusion caused by recreational 4×4 and motorbike use. GLEAM and the Campaign to Save Langdale Green Lanes gave written and oral evidence to LDNPA about the problems caused for farmers and non-motorised users of these routes and of the impact on the natural beauty of the area. But LDNPA’s Rights of Way Committee decided, at its meeting on 8 October 2019 to continue its policy of not using the TRO powers it asked for in 2005 and was granted by the NERC Act.

Having taken counsel’s opinion, GLEAM thinks LDNPA’s decision was unlawful. We have now launched a Crowd Justice fundraising page asking members and the wider public to help with the legal costs of our action against LDNPA.
