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.
