Unlawful use of off-road motorbikes

The Parish Council is receiving multiple reports of a large increase in the number of motorbikes riding unlawfully on footpaths and across designated land particularly in the area between Great Burney and Beacon Tarn. Riders have also been observed riding on the highway illegally.

A great deal of damage is being done to the landscape and there are reports of walkers being intimidated. We encourage residents to report these events to the Police.
