Popular byway ‘Wetton Hill’ is under threat of permanent closure to all mechanical vehicles by the Peak District National Park Authority, help fight the full time TRO!
Wetton Hill is a popular 1.4 km route along the Manifold Valley. The route does suffer from waterlogging during the winter months, however it is sustainable during the drier conditions.
GLASS have picked up the gauntlet and are opposing a full time TRO being placed on the route as they believe given the sustainability, a full Traffic Regulation Order, which would be unjustified.
A GLASS representative said “We believe the evidence on this route does not justify a be disproportionate and illogical. GLASS would – in view of the specific circumstances of this route – be prepared to support a proportionate seasonal TRO during the wettest months of each year.”
If you enjoy greenlaning and do not agree with the lanes being closed where it is not warranted, please have your say by responding to the Consultation on a Proposed Traffic Regulation Order by Peak District National Park Authority: (Wetton Hills Prohibition of Mechanically Propelled Vehicles) Traffic Regulation Order 2018.
