Battle is lost to keep path open

First published in News by

RESIDENTS are dismayed after a battle to keep a long-used footpath in Hadleigh was lost.

A two-day public inquiry was held last month into whether the footpath, between the disused Crown pub and the library, linking London Road and the High Street, could be recognised on a map.

Residents insisted the path had been used regularly by the public for seven decades and Essex County Council agreed – making the route an official right of way.

But Castle Point Council insisted the strip of land was crucial to its £60million regeneration of Hadleigh.

Yesterday, Government inspector Peter Millman ruled the route would be closed, saying it wasn’t clear how frequently it had been used between 1974 and 1994.

Roy Brackin, of Solbys Lane, Hadleigh, had applied for official recognition and slammed Castle Point Council’s stance on the route.

He said: “The actions of the council officers are quite simply deplorable. They have succeeded in depriving the community of a path that has been recognised by all as a public right of way in my lifetime.

“I will think about this for a while now and there are a number of things I am not sure about, but what are we supposed to do? We can’t fight this. We can’t afford to, so what should we do?”

Castle Point Council will now create “a tree-lined boulevard” at the site.

David Marchant, chief executive of Castle Point Council, said: “The decision is helpful as it will assist in getting on with plans to take forward the regeneration of Hadleigh town centre.”

The dispute began when the path was blocked off in 2011, as work began on a Morrisons supermarket.

Residents expected it to reopen after the store was built, but Castle Point Council kept it closed.

An Essex County Council legal services spokesman said theywere able to appeal, but hadn’t decided if they would do.

He said: “The council is usually content to rely on the inspector’s findings. A decision to challenge would need to be made in the next fewweeks.”

And to think Hadleigh councilors just a few months ago wanted to make the town more pedestrian friendly. Just shows what am utter load of old tosh councilors talk.

For those who don't know where this is about 15 yards or under at the other side of the Library just out of camera shot there is another pathway leading to London Road and the Library Carpark, all seems a bit petty in all fairness, i know some are set in their ways and don't welcome change but its happening.

I didnt realise there were two paths. I thought they were complaining about the car park route. Cant believe these fools are complaining about this other path on the other side of the library. Seriously! Its barely an extra 30 seconds walking distance.
These "people" should be made to compensate the council/us tax payers for the time and the costs to hold a 2 day enquiry.
No doubt these same people have been demanding Hadleigh gets a revamp and are happy for £60m to be spent doing so.

"I didnt realise there were two paths" .... Which is why you shouldn't comment on something you know nothing about ... The point is it was a public right of way until the Council decided to section it off when Morrisons was being built. The walking distance has nothing to do with it! .. As for £60m being spent on the place to revamp it, well I reckon most think that's a disgusting amount of money to waste on tarting it up .. I for one would want to see exactly how they've come up with this figure ..

Oh sorry didn't realise we lived in a country where we aren't allow to express our view and where our opinions were quashed. If you want to only hear view points that you agree with, then go talk to a mirror. If you don't like hearing peoples views then you shouldn't be getting involved in discussions.
As for what I said, I was stating that I am surprised people are being so petty over a tiny path when there is another one virtually right next to it. Who gives a tosh about whether it was a public right of way.
People need to realise that when things are being given where the local area will be changing for the better and when improvements are being offered, then a little bit of give and humility by those set to benefit wouldn't go amiss. If this path has to go to make the area better, why make a issue of it, embrace the future.

The point is it was a public right of way until the Council decided to section it off when Morrisons was being built. NOW IT ISN'T, GOT IT...
SO IT'S OK TO CLOSE OFF A PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAY BECAUSE MORRISONS WANTED TO STORE THEIR BUILDING MATERIALS THERE? ...NOW THE PLACE HAS BEEN BUILT THE PATH SHOULD BE LEFT OPEN........

For those who don't know where this is about 15 yards or under at the other side of the Library just out of camera shot there is another pathway leading to London Road and the Library Carpark, all seems a bit petty in all fairness, i know some are set in their ways and don't welcome change but its happening.

Oh sorry didn't realise we lived in a country where we aren't allow to express our view and where our opinions were quashed. If you want to only hear view points that you agree with, then go talk to a mirror. If you don't like hearing peoples views then you shouldn't be getting involved in discussions.
As for what I said, I was stating that I am surprised people are being so petty over a tiny path when there is another one virtually right next to it. Who gives a tosh about whether it was a public right of way.
People need to realise that when things are being given where the local area will be changing for the better and when improvements are being offered, then a little bit of give and humility by those set to benefit wouldn't go amiss. If this path has to go to make the area better, why make a issue of it, embrace the future.
You shouldn't be getting involved in discussions that you clearly know nothing about ... But then again, show me a thread where you aren't involved in some rant via your various usernames ..
Firstly, I only have the one username - fact! The only one I have had on here for many years.
Secondly repeating the same thing over and over in the hope of boring people doesn't mean you are right.
Finally, using caps everywhere is just the online version of a spoilt child having a tantrum and desperately wanting attention.
So to throw your own words back at you.....Got it?

Where are you from? Leigh? If you are then it doesn't really concern you what they do in Hadleigh ..
"Where are you from? Leigh? If you are then it doesn't really concern you what they do in Hadleigh .."

So only those people who live in Australia can comment on the royal visit?

So only those people who live in the Ukraine can comment on the problems there?

So only those people who live in Brazil can watch the World Cup football and comment on it?

What a pity some people don't engage brain before posting on here.
