ACTION plans agreed last week set out details of how the impact of recreational 4x4 vehicles and trail bikes will be managed on unsealed routes and off road in the Peak District National Park over the next year.

The authority has approved action on green lanes, controlling illegal use of unsealed routes and communications.

A list of 27 green lanes have been identified as priority routes for attention; 24 in Derbyshire and three in Cheshire, South Yorkshire and Staffordshire. All vehicles using the priority routes will be electronically logged and monitored.

A variety of actions are planned, including repairs to surfaces, communicating with relevant parish councils and consultations on proposed regulations to vehicle use.

Individual route action plans for 16 routes identified as being in most urgent need of improved management are now available on
