Part of the consultation on the Glover Landscapes Review (questions 14 to 17) concern the possibility of additional restrictions on motor vehicle use on so called “green lanes”. Think of the atrocious damage to Ramsden Road and other local unsealed highways. The countryside would be a much better place with public motor vehicles legislated out of existence on these routes. The consultation provides a once in a lifetime chance to get across to the government the damage and nuisance these vehicles cause. The questions are cut and pasted below for information.
The survey itself is here Dead line 9th April 2022. You know what to do 🙂

highway authorities additional powers to restrict recreational motor vehicle use on
unsealed routes? YES/NO/UNSURE
15.For which reasons should National Park Authorities, the Broads Authority and local
authorities exercise this power?

roads for recreational use, subject to appropriate exemptions? Yes – everywhere/
