Footpath 75 – Application to Restrict Pedestrian Access at Certain Times: Rejected

Wednesday 5th September

At the Local Committee Meeting at Pippbrook the request from the Howard of Effingham to restrict access Footpath 75 was heard. (This footpath is on the edge of the HoE grounds). The Committee heard well balanced presentations from Effingham Residents Association, Effingham Parish Council and the Rector of All Saints on how this would affect a large number of residents and cause safety issues. Julia Dickinson presented the background to the request from the Howard.

The request for closure was rejected by the Local Committee. Click here for the report and recommendations by Debbie Prismall, SCC’s Senior Countryside Access Officer
