Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Corporate Director – Business and Environmental Services approved that the
Authority should support confirmation of the Order in its submission to the Secretary of State (SoS).

Reasons for the decision:

No evidence has been provided to satisfactorily counter the evidence in support of the Order.

Alternative options considered:

The options, that the Authority could choose ??to support the non-confirmation of the Order or could take a neutral stance to the confirmation of the Order, were considered but were rejected as no evidence has been submitted to counter the historic evidence supporting the allegation that restricted byway rights exist. The objections to the Order relate to concerns for property security, a perception of lack of suitability for the route to be used as a restricted byway but these are not matters that can be taken into consideration.
