DCC is having to repeat its public consultation on the proposed Traffic Regulation Order banning motor vehicles from the lane called Jacob’s Ladder in Stoney Middleton. This is because there was a legal flaw in the consultation DCC ran earlier this year. Everyone who took part in the original consultation now needs to take part all over again if their views are to be taken into account.
Please take part in this new consultation. The Parish Council has been asking for a motor vehicle ban for over 20 years because the lane is dangerous. Its surface, trees, walls, banks and flora have also been severely damaged. Horse riders no longer dare use it.
The consultation is online on the consultation pages of the DCC website.
Please help save this lane.
