Jacobs Ladder, Stoney Middleton, potential TRO.

Post by Hugh » Mon May 21, 2018 4:30 pm

Greetings folks,

You may have heard or read on other websites that DCC has been pressurised into proposing to restrict all recreational motorised use by imposing a Traffic Regulation Order on Jacobs Ladder, Stoney Middleton.

There is no argument that the route is of BOAT status and that with no current TRO in force we may legally ride it. The crux of the matter is that there are some selfish folk out there who simply want to remove our hobby from existence. I am not making excuses for DCC but they have been forced into this situation by the shear volume of anti motorists availing themselves of the Consultation process instigated by the ignorance, greed or selfish ambitions of just a few.

The route is not, as claimed by some, damaged by motorists but entirely by a lack of maintenance on the part of the HA. We have offered to work with the Authorities on many aspects of future maintenance and management of this and similar routes but so far to no avail.

If we are to retain our Rights then we must take respectful action with our colleagues and participate in the Consultation process. There is no requirement for you to live locally nor to have ridden or to be riding the route, it is simply a fact that by shear volume of numbers we must OPPOSE the proposed TRO. Please pass this request on to all of your motorcycling friends, we need all motorcyclists and fair minded people to respond.

As a matter of fact according to the current DCC mapping portal there are 6 designated footpaths in the immediate vicinity of the one subject BOAT route.

Please email or write to DCC and recommend that they do not proceed with the proposal but that they work with us to find a consensus solution. If you choose to respond to the online questionnaire please ensure that you state that you are Opposing the proposal;
