Footpaths & Open Spaces

Due to the high volumes of rain experienced recently, footpaths around the town have become overgrown.

The permissive path which was given by Brett Aggregates, which runs through the long plantation at Moverons, has been cleared after we made a request to Brett Aggregates, who were only too happy to work with us.

Along the same lines, Footpath 23, which is located near the Robinson Road development that backs onto Granville Way, has been of a particular cause for concern with residents reporting problems to the council on an almost weekly basis.

We are happy to report that after contacting Hopkins Homes, which is leading the development in Robinson Road, we have had the following response:-

“I have spoken with the Hopkins team and the manager on site and we’d like to help. Our Site Manager has spoken with his landscapers to clear the vegetation from the path early next week. They will also provide a monthly visit to keep it in check going forward. I hope this goes some way to helping the residents using the footpath”.
