Paths and priorities…
We have a well used path.
Requiring modest maintenance.
We have (apparently/allegedly) a sum of £20,000.
This has been allocated for the proposed New Bridleway.
Plan A: Close well used current path.
Spend £20 000 on new path for which there is unproven demand.
Plan B: Use resources to maintain the current path.
Ditch the plans for the expensive bridleway.
Which makes sense? Plan A or Plan B?
There is time to influence events.
Tell your elected representatives.
And maybe your would-be elected representatives too.
Make them aware of your priorities and preferences.
After all, this is your Country Park and your Council Tax money.
Write or phone or email about these paths and a sense of priorities.
