An Open Letter to the Government and all County Councils

An Open Letter to the Government and all County Councils

Written by Alison I have just read the article in the Wiltshire Gazette and Herald regarding farmers erecting signs on public rights of way. I would like to say that this was entirely foreseeable, and that little empathy is being shown to both the farming community and anyone else who has a public right of way through their garden at this very unusual time, when understandably people do their best to self isolate. It would be a great mistake to…

In the present world pandemic there are NO government directives to protect individual home owners who are burdened with a Public Right of Way through their gardens. It is unacceptable to place all responsibility for public and personal safety on the home owner. The government MUST act now.

I saw the article ‘If supermarkets can stay open so can churches’. I sent it to our Vicar who hopes, as I do, that the hierarchy of the Church will soon see sense. Meanwhile he’s got a bottle of gin and I’m tidying out cupboards. I equated the article with Public Rights of Way in that common sense is a little lacking in both. Ie; I can walk on a narrow PROW, touch any manner of gates and tread though…

Ramblers must be unaware of the misery that many of their ill researched ‘lost’ Footpath Claims cause to ‘Ordinary’ Homeowners.

Ramblers must be unaware of the misery that many of their ill researched ‘lost’ Footpath Claims cause to ‘Ordinary’ Homeowners.

In answer to The Ramblers Facebook Page. Unfortunately you choose to either ignore the misery you are causing to any home owners affected by some of your claims or you are unaware of it. I hope it is the latter. Some claims are for routes through people’s private gardens even living rooms! The claim itself remains unresolved for years, can be found ‘eventually’ to be false or incorrect but meanwhile has devalued a property and caused misery to an ordinary…

Government closes public places but man is told he must reopen the Public Footpath through his garden or face Court Action!

Government closes public places but man is told he must reopen the Public Footpath through his garden or face Court Action!

This is the notice which politely asks the public to stay away from one mans Private Garden. Wales has temporarily closed ALL Public Footpaths. The police have powers to enforce government guidelines. Some Councils have issued temporary closure notices. One Parish Council puts up its own notice. Yet the victim of a Public Footpath through his own private garden is threatened with prosecution if he does not remove HIS notice. Where are Private Human Rights?Where is the right for a…

One Council publish their ‘Advice‘ to those with a PROW through their gardens. They should be ASHAMED!!!

One Council publish their ‘Advice‘ to those with a PROW through their gardens. They should be ASHAMED!!!

Advice as Follows; [“People living in close proximity to public rights of way are reminded that the public have a legal right to use a Public Right of Way, and that they should not block or obstruct paths. Some paths pass close to residential properties, and in some cases through gardens, but with sensible precautions there is no reason that this would increase the risk to householders of contracting Coronavirus. Public rights of way provide an opportunity for local people to…
