Motorsport Events on Public Rights of Way

We have just published a new LARA Paper, titled Motorsport Events on Public Rights of Way and sub-titled Good Practice in Statutory Authorisation. This sets out, in principle, the relationship between ‘route authorisation’ (under S.13 of the Road Traffic Act 1988) and authorisation for the use of rights of way (under S.33 of the same Act), together with basic guidance on appropriate conditions that might be imposed by a local authority when granted ‘S.33 authorisation’. We intend to publish a second paper, later this summer, providing more detailed guidance to organisers seeking S.33 authorisation for their event. The new Paper is available from the LARA – Papers and Reports page.
