Somerset County Council process 10 modification applications per YEAR. They currently have 375!!!

August 2019 to April 2020 Somerset County Council have had 18 more applications!!!

This was the answer received from Somerset County Council in August 2019

“We aim to determine 10 applications per year. However, we have recently taken steps to increase the rate at which applications are determined. Based on the current rate of determination I estimate it will be 20 – 30 years before investigation of application 8**M commences.“

The current indiscriminate RAMBLER initiatives to claim Historic Paths from as far back as 1886 Regardless of where they affect ordinary home owners and working farms is unforgivable.

Those ‘victims‘ of this ‘do gooding’ campaign are now blighted for 20 to 30 years.The wrath of the Access obsessed and County Council misunderstanding of their perceived ‘duty’ in a corrupt system of Public Rights of Way not fit for purpose in the twenty first century, is upon them.

  1. …and it took 50 years to correct a mistake made by SCC in 1959.
    When this was finally determined by the Secretary of State in 2017 the SCC dropped down well behind the parapet and failed conspicuously to apologise to the Peppard family for their mistake and the several times they had prosecuted the elderly landowner. And a 2017 Application claiming that the non-existent Public Footpath “ought to be” a Public Bridleway is festering in the pile of 375 Applications.

  2. When will the Deregulation Act 2015 Public Rights of Way be implemented? It became law in 2015 but to date 2020, has not been implemented!
    I have a small field next to my house which had footpaths along 2 sides but now after a historic claim from the local Parish Council and their supporters I now have a new path along a third side. The 4th side is my neighbours boundary.
    Council Legal Services made no attempt to discus the land owners views regarding this third path. A Public Enquiry ruled in favour of the Parish Council and their supporters including the local confessed anarchist. This is legalised insanity.

    1. Why didn’t you object to the order at the public enquiry? Perhaps you could research the path and find new evidence to object to the order decision.
