The Developers HAVE NOT consulted any walking, cycling or other similar groups –
The ‘Paths’ in this development are proposed to COMBINE walking, cycling and horse riders utilising the same paths????? HAVE YOUR COMMENT

Other individual local issues:

1. a problem with Sawbridgeworth FP002 which is currently obstructed at its junction with Spellbrook Lane. In addition to debris around the entrance stile there are at least two sets of temporary fencing crossing the route of the path which appear to be horse related.

2. a bridge closure on BS BR 38(bridleway) between Green Tye and Danebridge Road leading into Much Hadham.

3. the proposed boundary changes between Bishops Stortford and Thorley.
These changes could facilitate development on land south of Whittington Way. Such development could remove the long distance footpath potential connection between the Hertfordshire Way and the walks along river Stort and Thorley Wash Nature Reserve (SSI).

4. proposed diversion of BS FP007 – Silver Leys – Currently with Herts CC.

Hope you find this helpful – ENJOY WALKING and Keep in Touch, AND DO COMMENT.
