Proposed diversion of footpath BW 26/63 in the Parish of Over Stowey

Somerset County Council has received an application to divert the above mentioned footpath and wishes to consult with all interested parties regarding this proposal. Please find attached a plan showing the existing and proposed routes, and their location.

Description of part of footpath to be diverted
The existing line of the footpath starts from point A and runs in a westerly direction up steep steps and through a kissing gate. It then passes very close to the living areas of Bincombe Farm before going through a pedestrian gate into the field and on to point B. A total distance of approximately 63 metres.

Description of alternative route
The alternative route will start from point C and will run in a westerly direction up the gently sloping drive (to be tarmacked) to a new pedestrian gate into the field at point D. The path will then continue in a north westerly direction to re-join the original route at point B.
A total distance of approximately 70 metres. The width will be 2 metres.

The alternative route will give privacy and security to the property owners.
