    National consultation on use of green lanes by 4x4s and motor bikes – please take part and have your say
    Dear Walking Group
    I am writing on behalf of the Green Lanes Environmental Action Movement (GLEAM) to let you know that the government is including questions about off-roading on green lanes in its public consultation on the Glover landscapes review. You may well know about this consultation already. ‘Green lanes’ are the unsealed rural tracks that are classified either as Byways Open to All Traffic (BOATs) or as unsealed, unclassified roads, shown on the OS map as Other Routes with Public Access (ORPAs).
    We know from our work with Parish Councils and local communities that 4x4s and motor bikes driving on BOATs and UURs is a serious issue countrywide, damaging precious landscapes, even in the National Parks and AONBs. And it is causing nuisance, sometimes danger, for walkers and other non-motorised users, for residents, farmers and landowners. It is also clear that the current legislation which is supposed to control the use of recreational 4x4s and motor bikes on unsealed tracks in the countryside is failing.
    The government consultation asks whether there should be new legislation to stop non-essential, recreational motoring on green lanes. We hope that both your walking club and your individual members will take part in the consultation and will want to call for an end to green lane motoring everywhere, but particularly in National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
    The government’s response to the Glover review and the online consultation are at Government response to the Landscapes Review – Defra – Citizen Space . The questions about recreational motors on green lanes are questions 13 to 17.
    If you don’t want to answer all the other questions in the online questionnaire, just click through to questions 13 to 17.
    The consultation closes on 9 April.
    There is a GLEAM briefing note about the consultation at GLEAM-briefing-Glover-Landscapes-Review.pdf (gleam-uk.org)
    If you think that your members would be interested in taking part in this consultation as individuals, please forward this email to them.
    Best wishes, Michael Bartholomew
    Chairman
    Green Lanes Environmental Action Movement
