Footpath – New Works

From the Friends of Abbey Fields Chairman:

We have received some good news that we would like to share with you all!

Many of you, we know, were somewhat alarmed at the prospect of major new works to improve the footpath leading up to Malthouse Lane. FOAF, alongside other societies, were invited to express their views during the consultation process conducted by Andrew Jones, the Deputy Chief Executive of WDC.

We have now been officially notified by WDC that there will be no major change to the format or positioning of the path, which was our major concern. At one point, there were even suggestions for constructing a zigzag path! So it is with some relief that we can inform you that WDC has concluded that repairs to the path are all that is required with the path being restored to its original width and the surface improved. We are not sure when the work will be completed, but we anticipate it will be next Spring.

Thank you for your interest and continued support.

Chairman, Oct 2017
