Peak boost as unauthorised building removed
Bookmark and Share
An unauthorised structure made from wooden pallets has been removed from a moor in the Peak District.

The building and a track cut into the hillside at Summerhill Clough Farm near Hulme breached regulations and the park authority took action after the tenant failed to restore the land to its normal condition as instructed.

Such action may boost those who plan to go walking or camp in tents in the area, as it removes what some would consider an eyesore.

Chair of the authority's planning committee John Herbert said: "It is not acceptable for the visual beauty of this area to be damaged in this way and we are determined to pursue this case until the land is fully restored."

Those who are heading for the Peak District moorland may be wise to take care during the current dry spell, as there is a risk of moorland fires in many places.

The first warning notices were put up just before Easter, with the authority noting several blazes had already occurred in the first half of April.
