Rights of Way online petition
Following on from this post on the forum, several people have asked us to draw your attention to an online petition on the Wiltshire County Council website.
This e-petition is titled “Rights of Way damage” and it is asking for some type of restrictive status to be put in place to reduce the amount of damage being done to our rights of way by off-road vehicles. Please note this is not asking for their access to be prohibited. The petition can be found via this link.
The text of the petition reads as follows:
We the undersigned petition the council to place restrictions, either physical or legislative, on the following byways so that damage caused by off-road vehicles is controlled and managed: Peaks (Gallops) Ewins Hill to Loves Lane Ewins Hill to Hilldrop Ewins Hill to Ramsbury Brewery Whiteshard Bottom. We further request that existing damage is repaired and further maintained.
Horse riders, walkers & cyclists are becoming increasingly excluded from using the public rights of way (ROW) in and surrounding the village of Aldbourne, near Marlborough, Wiltshire. These ROW are being damaged to such high levels that many are no longer safe to use without risk of injury.
We believe that the very high levels of off-road vehicles using the ROW are causing much of this damage. We further believe that these ROW should be enjoyed by all groups and that it is not acceptable that the use by 1 group is causing the exclusion of all other users.
If this is something you would like to support please sign the petition before the closing date on Saturday 30th June.
