This ‘new’ footpath was added to the pathways of the Country Park to enable pedestrians to walk from the main car park to the Chapel in safety. For many years there had been concerns that the road was potentially dangerous for walkers, especially children, walkers with their pets and people who were less mobile.
As a way forward, this new footpath was created.
Today, 3rd July, a proposal was published on-line. This proposal will be put to the Werneth Area Committee on 13th July. The elected representatives will be asked to comment on this proposal:
Comment on the proposal to permit equestrian access to route (G to H on the plan) or to retain the route for pedestrians only.
G to H on the map is the ‘new’ footpath.
So permit equestrian access?
or retain the route for pedestrians only?
What do you think?
You have a week to let your councillors know how any change might affect you, so that their comments will reflect the views of current users and the wider community.
