Peak District National Park wants to hear from you

The Peak District National Park Authority want to hear your views about their latest local plan, which may affect leisure activities in the Peak District.

The Local Plan covers planning policies for an area, and considers issues such as recreation and tourism, health and well-being, and sustainable transport and infrastructure. All of these are issues that can impact mountain bikers who live and ride in the Peak District National Park. The future of multi-user trails such as the Monsal Trail and Trans-Pennine Trail are determined by the Local Plan, as are facilities and accommodation for visitors. 

If you care about off-road cycling in the Peak District – whether as a resident or a visitor – your opinion in this Local Plan survey is important.

“We have launched a new streamlined Local Plan Review survey (which should take around 20 minutes to complete). The survey will be available through to 5th May 2021. We are particularly keen to hear from young people but hope this new survey is accessible to all. (If you completed the original survey, which was live from November 2020 to February 2021, there is no need to complete this new version).

“The results will directly feed into debates that are happening now at the national park. The responses really will count and help shape policies for years to come.” – Peak District National Park Authority
