Public Path Diversion and Definitive Map and Statement Modification Order - Footpath 107 Saddleworth (part) at Ambrose Lodge, Sandy Lane, Dobcross pdf icon PDF 200 KB

To seek approval to the making of a Public Path Diversion and Definitive Map and Statement Modification Order

Minutes:

The Panel gave consideration to a report that sought approval for the making of a Public Path Diversion and Definitive Map and Statement Modification Order for Footpath 107 Saddleworth (part) at Ambrose Lodge, Sandy Lane, Dobcross.

 

The application was received from the resident of Ambrose Lodge, Sandy Lane for the diversion of Footpath 107 Saddleworth (part) which passed through the garden and farm fields adjacent to the residence. The existing route ran parallel to the stone wall and crossed the driveway access, where it crossed a step stile through a hedge line proceeding directly across the front yard area of Ambrose Lodge and continued through the adjacent field. The applicant proposed a diversion along the boundary of their land into their adjacent field which would give a clear delineated path for the public to use. The distance travelled around the diversion would be minor and inconvenience to members of the public would be minimal.

 

Options considered:

Option 1: to approve the recommendation.

Option 2: not to approve the recommendation.

 

RESOLVED that, as per the recommendation, the Public Path Diversion and Definitive Map and Statement Modification Order for Footpath 107 Saddleworth (part) be approved under section 119 of the Highways Act 1980 and section 53A of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.
