A law banning vehicles from a green lane will be enforced from this week onwards.

As of Thursday, quad bikes, trail bikes and 4x4s will be banned from the Roych, which is part of the Pennine Bridleway national trail, near Chapel–en–le–Frith.

The Traffic Regulation Order made by the Peak District National Park Authority following a public consultation.

Chairman of the authority’s audit resources and performance committee, Christopher Pennell said: “Making the order at the Roych was the culmination of a long process but we needed to protect this environmentally–sensitive area of the Dark Peak.”

The authority has launched a consultation on whether trail-bikes, quad bikes and 4x4s should be prohibited from Leys Lane, near Longstone Edge.

The consultation runs until October 25.
