Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Approval that Authority to adopt a neutral stance in relation to confirmation of the Order within its submission of the opposed Modification Order to the Secretary of State.

Reasons for the decision:

Overall it was considered that the evidence was not satisfactorily persuasive to encourage the support for the confirmation of the Order, nor is the evidence positively demonstrating that the route cannot in fact be a public right of way, therefore a neutral stance on behalf of the authority towards confirmation of the Order is justifiable.

Alternative options considered:

The only alternative options available were to support confirmation of the Order, or to positive oppose the confirmation of the Order. Neither were considered appropriate due to the inconclusive nature of the evidence.
