Illegal Off-Road Activity
Increase in off-road activity during lockdown
We have seen an increase in reports of off-road activity in the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB since lockdown began, with people travelling to use routes where there are legal rights of way for off-road vehicles. However, there has also been an increase in incidents on areas where vehicle access is prohibited. This can cause irreparable damage to some of our most sensitive habitats and wildlife.
At present, while Wales remains in a Tier 4 lockdown, off-road travel for enjoyment of routes with legal rights for vehicles is classed as non-essential travel. North Wales Police are stopping and fining people.
If you see any off-road activity you think is illegal, please report to North Wales Police via 101 or online using the live chat or reporting forms.
Did You Know?
Accessing areas where vehicle access is prohibited is never ok and can result in large fines and even vehicles being seized.
