Better Bridleways for Essex

We are campaigning for more off road hacking for riders in Essex. As our county gets busier with more housing developments and busier roads we are campaigning for more safe routes for horse riders. This will also provide safer routes for walkers and cyclists too. 

What it is?

This campaign is reaching out to riders as well as cyclists and walkers and anyone who enjoys getting out in the countryside. We want to encourage people to get their voices heard. 

How are we doing it?

We have developed a number of resources to help our members to get active. On the 8th June we submitted a petition to Essex County Council,. Many thanks to everyone who turned out for this event which was highly successful in terms of raising awareness.  Many thanks also to everyone who completed our survey on the website. There is also  a fact sheet on the main arguments for better bridleways and information on how to complain to your local councillor or MP

What do we want people to do to help?

It’s time to speak out and be heard. We have started to make an impact with our petition and the publicity around this, we have completed the survey and will be informing you on the key findings from this shortly. So now, why not write to your local councillor and also to your MP. Check out our templates and briefing paper for some key messages to use in your letters.

When do they need to do it by?

We have submitted our petition to Essex County Council on 8th June and generated a lot of publicity. Our survey was live until  the end of June and we will be publishing the results shortly. So now, why not write to your councillor or MP now before the summer break.
