Online petition to safeguard rights of way

Do you moan about having no bridleways to ride on?

If proposals from the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions come into force, thousands of miles of bridleways and other rights of way will be blocked to mountain bikers and other countryside users.

about the problem

Sign the our e-petition which will be presented to the government, below.

We, the undersigned, do not support the Department of the Environment,
Transport and the Region’s proposals outlined in Improving Rights of Way in
England and Wales.

As they stand the proposals are counter to previous DETR and Co Ag
recommendations in that the main thrust is to provide tools for closure and
restriction of use. The proposals are a disaster for heritage, landscape and
wildlife. If the proposals are carried forward in legislation there are many
Authorities that will not be able to comply due to the massive extra workload

We respectfully request that Central Government reconsider the Countryside
Agency’s recommendations and, working with national access organisations, redraw
proposals which are equitable to both landowners, conservationists and all users
of higher rights of way.
