Heap Road

Hi everyone,
 
One of our members raised an issue with residents who live next to the ginnell which links Heap Road (near old Norden Chimney) to Durnford Close, complaining about horse riders going up there.
 
This route is currently with the council's legal department for upgrade to bridleway status and was approved two years ago. 
 
 I have spoken to Julie Simpson, Rights of Way Officer, who has spoken to the resident and explained that the path is in the process of being upgraded to bridleway status.  They aren't happy but as they don't own the property feel they can't object. 
 
Julie wants to know if anyone is confronted by this person so if you do get stopped going through will you please either let me know or contact Julie direct, 01706 647474.
 
Thank you.
 
Barbara
