INFORMATION FOR BIGFOOT MEMBERS…
We have received an application under S119 of the Highways Act 1980 from the owner of the land at Painswick Beacon to divert a section of bridleway that runs along the 8th and 9th fairway of the golf course. The application is made in conjunction with Painswick Golf Club in the interests of public safety. There is a ridge across the fairway that obscures walkers and riders from golfers and vice versa. There have been several near misses in the past few years and a walker was struck by a golf ball as recently as last month.
I have attached a map of the proposals and as you will see there are several other routes for walking and riding without using this section of bridleway. The new bridleway will take riders and walkers away from the blind section of path to join an existing bridleway MPA 133 that skirts the edge of the fairway. There will be no gates and the new path is unenclosed. Would you please give this proposal your consideration and let me have your comments by the end of April. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
