A council is looking to ban off-road vehicles on moorland to protect the habitat.

Calderdale Council is due to review existing Public Space Protection Orders this month and is looking to extend them.

As part of the process, people in the borough are being asked for their views on proposed changes to the legal restrictions in place to protect moorlands and to keep public spaces safe and clean.

The orders can prohibit certain behaviour or activity as well as require action to be taken in a defined area.

Cabinet member for Public Services and Communities, Coun Jenny Lynn (Lab, Park), said the aim was to ensure the countryside could be enjoyed safely.

“We want people to enjoy our beautiful countryside and public spaces, but we also have a duty to protect them and ensure they can be enjoyed safely.

“We’re now asking for people’s feedback as we review the orders in support of our commitment to ensuring the borough remains a great place to live, work and visit,” she said.

Full details of the orders and the proposed changes can be found on the council’s website which also has information about how to give your feedback.

The deadline for responses is Tuesday, June 7.
