Hilltracks Petition

Just had an email from MSPs Peter Peacock and Sarah Boyack, sponsors of the Hilltracks Petition, to say that after one week a total of 400 people had signed up to the petition which will put pressure on ministers to look at planning legislation relating to these erosions scars.

What a pathetic response from the hill-going community. As usual, hill-goers seem content to sit on the side-lines and wait for others to do something on their behalf.

I've just put a news item on the MCofS website and hopefully Bob at grough and the guys at ukclimbing will pick this up and get more publicity for the petition.
