The Peak District National Park has been ordered to pay the Trail Riders Fellowship £20,000 towards their costs in overturning the illegal closure of Chapel Gate last year. That brings the Peak Park's overall legal costs for their attempts to ban vehicles from green lanes to an estimated £70,000 for this case alone.
Are you happy with this waste of your cash, fellow taxpayers? If not, tell your local newspaper, your MP and anyone else you know who visits the Peak Park to follow their chosen pastime.
According to the TRF's Rights of Way Director, the TRF spent £99,000 in legal costs last year defending everyone's right to use these routes.
