Thompson Parish Council support the NCC order for a Byway Open to All Traffic through Pockthorpe Lane.

Thompson Parish Council support the NCC order for a Byway Open to All Traffic through Pockthorpe Lane.

It is quite incomprehensible to me that Thompson Parish Council, who are supposed to represent the views of villagers and Pockthorpe Lane residents, would risk supporting an order which could result in motorbikes and off road vehicles using a narrow lane past residential houses. The road would be bulldozed through meadows and woods and take traffic both ways. The following is an extract from Thompson Parish Council minutes February 2020. Public inquiry – Norfolk County Council (Thompson, Pockthorpe Lane). April…

Do Residents of Pockthorpe Lane Thompson actually want a Byway Open to All Traffic?

Do Residents of Pockthorpe Lane Thompson actually want a Byway Open to All Traffic?

Do they understand that this includes motorbikes,4×4 off road vehicles, cycles, horse riders and walkers? Do they imagine that it is now a simple task to ban all users except walkers? Not one resident has asked Thompson Parish Council even one question concerning the public inquiry and how any decision will affect them. Are they even aware that Thompson Parish Council has set up a committee to represent their views? The aftermath will be interesting.

What will Thompson Parish Council have to say to residents when all the single issue groups are in court pressing for access by 4×4’s and trail bikes?……”sorry we didn’t think you would be interested”?

For the attention of Thompson Parish Council In reply to your email of 17th May I would respectfully point out that there are several misconceptions contained within it. Firstly the ‘route’ was never on the definitive map and Norfolk County Council stated that no public right of way existed. It follows therefore that Thompson Parish Council were not ‘applying for re-instatement’. They were applying for the addition of a footpath. This was rejected. Norfolk County Council did not ‘make a…

What about smaller areas of the countryside, including through MY GARDEN where BOAT is claimed? ( Byway Open To All Traffic)…….. Anyone in POCKTHORPE LANE, THOMPSON, NORFOLK bothered? F GLittle Langdale, ENG, United Kingdom 21 DEC 2019 —  The Lake District National Park Authority has formally stated that it is not backing down….

KIRKLEES COUNCIL’S CLAIM ON FARMERS LAND QUASHED BY HIGH COURT CHALLENGE

KIRKLEES COUNCIL’S CLAIM ON FARMERS LAND QUASHED BY HIGH COURT CHALLENGE

In 2009 “off road” 4×4 vehicles and motorbikes started to try to drive through the Bradley’s Farmyard and dairy based upon advice of Kirklees Council. Attempts to stop them resulted in threats and eventually assault by angry drivers who claimed the route was public.  When questioned, the Council told the Bradleys that the Council had recorded, without notice, a public road through the middle of their small dairy farm in 1985. The Council said the Bradleys must let people through. This led to a David and Goliath battle involving two failed enforcement attempts by the…

Farmers Angela and Edward Bradley have accused Kirklees Council of making “error after error” in an 11-year David and Goliath dispute over a Huddersfield farm track

Examiner Live 20/11/19 A council has been accused of making “error after error” in an 11-year David and Goliath dispute over a Huddersfield farm track that may have cost taxpayers as much as £250,000.  Dairy farmers Angela and Edward Bradley say a narrow, single-lane track that runs across their land has no public access rights. Riders and walkers are allowed to use it if they have sought permission. Kirklees Council argued it is a public bridleway. Mr and Mrs Bradley, of Nether…
