Many of you may be aware that the site at Shottle has been closed with immediate effect. I have been in contact with the site owner and will be having an initial meeting with him on Sunday 12 October to discuss the details of the closure and see if we can assist with helping to resolve the problem he is facing with DEFRA. I will pass on any information when i have it regarding this matter, but would inform you all that the closure has arisen as a DIRECT CONFLICT between ramblers and off road drivers. I would ask therefore that you ALL consider the implications of your actions when driving off road, be it verbally or otherwise, and remind you that ramblers have a legal right to walk across sites as much as you have a right to drive on them. PLEASE do NOT get into arguments with them, as this then gives them ammunition to contact local authorities, and will result in further site closures.
