Proposed changes to public footpaths

Somerset County Council are proposing to change the routes of certain public footpaths, of which one, BW34/41, alongside the River Parrett, falls within Wembdon Parish. This footpath forms part of the England Coast Path, and in practice the effect of the proposal is to formalise the diversions which users of the path have been following for some time.

The consultation period runs until Wednesday 4th December 2019, and comments can be sent to Sarah Littler at Somerset County Council, quoting reference RW/PPO11/SL.

The details which follow refer to this map. References to “Plan 1 of this order”, etc are to detailed plans which can be obtained from Sarah Littler.

PROPOSED PUBLIC PATH DIVERSION ORDER

HIGHWAYS ACT 1980

SOMERSET COUNTY COUNCIL

Footpaths BW25/31 (part) in Otterhampton parish, BW5/4 (parts) in Cannington parish, BW34/41 (parts) in Wembdon parish, BW10/12 (part), BW10/11 (part), BW10/9 (part) in Chilton Trinity parish

This Order is proposed by Somerset County Council (‘’the authority’’) under Section 119 of the Highways Act 1980 (‘’the 1980 Act’’) because it appears to the authority that in the interest of the public it is expedient that the line of the path should be diverted.
