Proposed Public Path Creation Order - Crimple Beck, Follifoot

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Business and Environmental Services

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


That a Public Path Creation Order is to be made to create a section of public bridleway to connect bridleways 15.54/129 and 15.54/61.

Reasons for the decision:

The decision was made as there has been public pressure to enhance the public rights of way network by connecting the 2 cul-de-sac bridleways to make them contiguous, by creating a 5m length of linking bridleway.

Alternative options considered:

The possibility of creating the section of bridleway by Agreement with the relevant landowners had been explored but this had been rejected by the landowners. The 2 routes could remain as cul-de-sac paths, but this is unsatisfactory for the users of the public rights of way network, and potentially could lead to deliberate or inadvertent trespass to make connection between to 2 routes.
