Obstructed access near New Road Hill end

I am reporting this a second time because no link was sent to my email address.

The footpath to Downe is blocked by horizontal cloth tape near the Riding stables at the north end (close to New Road Hill). There are three stiles and in the next field the line of the path is obstructed as said. I cannot see alternate access. Access should be made clear with a sign.

  • Many thanks for bringing this to our attention, I've carried out a site visit and seen the electric fence across the public right of way. I've notified the land owner that this electric fence is an obstruction and needs to be removed as soon as possible, provision is required to contain the horses in the field so I've allowed 14 days for this to happen after which time a further inspection will be carried out and enforcement action will commence if nothing has happened. Many thanks and kind regards, JPR - 30/10/2019
