BEAT - Blackshaw Environmental Action Team (BEAT) was formed in 1998 as a result of a successful local campaign against off road motorcycle racing on Dukes Cut. The campaign was launched to stop environmental damage and hundreds of local people signed a petition and sent letters of objection.

BEAT has the following aims:

  1. To protect nature, wildlife and the general environment in Blackshaw.
  2. To ensure that local and national authorities and organisations act to conserve the area, involving local people in the process.
  3. To monitor and oppose any activity detrimental to nature, wildlife and the general environment in the area.
  4. To assist and/or develop any plan which enhances nature, wildlife and the general environment in the area.
  5. To encourage, promote and assist the introduction of domestic renewable energy technologies and similar sustainable initiatives, sympathetic to the general environment in the area.
  6. To promote, develop and sustain measures for the benefit of the environment in the area.
