Since the lifting of lock down restrictions more and more visitors are rightly getting out into the outdoors for exercise and relaxation. This has brought with it an unprecedented number of motor vehicles for which there is just not enough room for them to be parked in the ‘hot spots’ of Derbyshire and the Peak District National Park. There are however many, many places where you can go to get away from the crowds, park vehicles unobtrusively and have the place to yourself. They only need looking  for.

If you need to park in the villages and hot spots of  the area please park with consideration for others and the people who live here. The current guidance states that we should adhere to social distancing at all times and measures are in place to allow wider footways, to do this. The examples below are cars parked in Hathersage where there is clear lack of consideration for others. Where there are double yellow lines restricting parking, this restriction extends from the road edge, back to the building, so these cars are parked illegally and not allowing passing motorists to see pedestrians waiting at a crossing point.

The Police are being informed about this inconsiderate parking and all car registration numbers are available from the village CCTV system.

Across the National Park there has been an increase in littering seen at many places. It would seem that in the main litter bins are being used but they are not big enough to cope with the extra demand. The bins then overflow and the wind does the rest. Derbyshire Dales refuse collection teams are trying to fit in more collections to keep on top of the problem as are village caretakers.

If you find a litter bin is full please can you take your litter home and dispose of it elsewhere to keep our villages tidy for those that live here and for subsequent people who visit the area.

Thank you for your anticipated co-operation.
