Something to think about??

As you will see these are the dates that the Pass is open for use, not all of them for 4x4s. Note that there is opportunity at the end of June/ beginning of July, which is the week before our scheduled week end camp and green Lane run in this area.

We can only take 4 vehicles per permit, all of which have to be 100" or less! The maximum number allowed per day is 12, so we could have 3 groups with 3 permits, of 4 vehicles going over on the same day. This will depend on the availability on the day. The sooner we can get in for the permits the more chance we have on travelling the same day.

Changes to Gatescarth Permit Scheme 2017

We have been working with User Groups to improve administration of the Gatescarth Permit scheme. During 2017 we will release the dates you can apply for permits on, on a quarterly basis.  Dates for the next quarter will be released at the beginning of February, May, August and November.  This, it is hoped, will reduced the number of amendments made following an application for a permit.

Please could all applicants have the correct information including names, addresses and registration numbers of ALL permit users prior to applying, as we may refuse applications which do not hold the required information.

Many thanks for your help in making Gatescarth Permit Scheme run smoothly.

  • Sunday 8 January 2017 - motorcycles only
