A. Sheridan made this Freedom of Information request to Peak District National Park Authority

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Peak District National Park Authority,

In 2011 plans were drawn up and published for a cycle link between Monsal Trail and Buxton, via Woo Dale.

Ultimately these were not progressed, and no progress has been made since (at least to public knowledge). What is the current status of Derbyshire County Council and the Peak District National Park's aim to connect this trail into Buxton and complete the "White Peak Loop"? What barriers are preventing the completion of the planned link, and if it has had to be abandoned completely, what ideas is the Peak District National Park looking at for alternative routes?

Yours faithfully,

A. Sheridan

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Thank you for your request for information* which we received on 2^nd
July. I have considered your request under the Environmental Information
Regulations 2004. 

 

Derbyshire County Council (DCC) had proposed a suggested route as part of
the White Peak Loop project, for which they had received funding. We are
not aware of any active plans regarding the route to which you refer, but
understand that DCC have not backfilled the post vacated by the previous
project officer, which may have had some impact on the proposals.

 

PDNPA is not currently looking at creating the proposed route or
alternative routes as DCC received the funding for the development of the
White Peak Loop.

 

More information on the White Peak Loop is published on DCC’s website,
please refer to:

 

[1]https://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/leisure/co...

 

You may also be interested in the Pedal Peak Phase II Final Project Report
2013-2016, available from DCC’s website and which includes details on the
development of the White Peak Loop:

If you have not already done so I would suggest you refer your request to
them.  Please contact: [3][email address]

 

I hope that the information provided is helpful, however if you have any
further queries please contact me quoting the reference number at the top
of the correspondence.

 

If you are unhappy with the way in which we have handled your request, you
have a right to an internal review through our complaints procedure.
Please email [4][email address]. Requests for reviews should be
made within three months of the date of our response.

 

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right of appeal to the Information Commissioner. The Information
Commissioner can be contacted via the ICO website at
[5]http://ico.org.uk/concerns/getting/repor.... Requests for
reviews by the

ICO must be made within three months of the conclusion of any internal
review by the Authority.

 

Yours faithfully
