There is no such thing as a ‘Lost Path’ never mind 49,000 of them!

There is no such thing as a ‘Lost Path’ never mind 49,000 of them!

The result of the Ramblers so called ‘Lost Paths’ campaign is now revealed, in typical vitriolic manner, but even I was sickened and shocked by the staggering number of 49,000 miles they have announced Adding insult to injury the Ramblers are asking for the help of people who have scant knowledge of PROW and the complex process involved. The law is so ludicrous that it allows paths to  be claimed through someones living room, and I suspect that that some…

Lockdown and Public Footpaths through Private Gardens.

Lockdown and Public Footpaths through Private Gardens.

I have been looking for guidance concerning public footpaths which go through private gardens. During the last lockdown there were some very unsavoury disputes caused by the lack of clear guidance and the refusal of government to protect vulnerable people from public wandering at will through their private gardens and farmyards. Happily, I have at least read the following; Outdoor public places include: parks, beaches, countryside, public gardens (whether or not you pay to enter them), allotments playgrounds You cannot…

Cowards of the ‘Anonymous’ Complaint.

Cowards of the ‘Anonymous’ Complaint.

It’s really not nice when an anonymous member of the public makes a complaint about you. It’s even worse when you know that their complaint stems from perhaps a personal dislike, a jealousy or just a sheer desire to get you into trouble. I suffered yet another of these ‘made up’ anonymous complaints again last week. Fortunately I am of an age that affords me a very thick skin concerning these matters and I am happily able to ignore it…

A FOOTPATH PAVED WITH (YOUR) GOLD

A FOOTPATH PAVED WITH (YOUR) GOLD

By:BrianPain&David Rottenborough This is definitely worth a read. The article is from The Faversham Eye and can also be read by clicking on the link above. How a small clique of Parish councillors can manipulate the law to finance their pipe dream with charity and taxpayer’s money. Plan of the footpath routes: the closed path is in red and the alternative route in blue. The dashed black lines are public footpaths It was only going to cost £4,500. So it…

Ramblers Rule! They can walk in groups of thirty. Why?

Ramblers Rule! They can walk in groups of thirty. Why?

so it’s one rule for everyone else and another for the Ramblers! Of course, I shouldn’t be surprised, it’s always the same for this untouchable organisation. It never fails to amaze me how they wield this Incredible power, when even government are frightened to upset them! They are even classed as a charity and receive funds from the postcode lottery. I wonder how many of the public realise how rich an organisation they are and yet they are allowed to…

The inspector is bound by her findings to confirm, decline or modify the Order even if it’s stupid………..Until the deregulation act comes in we are bound by stupidity.

The inspector is bound by her findings to confirm, decline or modify the Order even if it’s stupid………..Until the deregulation act comes in we are bound by stupidity.

This is the order Order Ref: ROW/3220614 These are quotes from the Inspector. “a right of way is not stopped up simply by the fact that it is built over.” “Considerations relating to the Human Rights Act 1998 (“the 1998 Act”) are not engaged in relation to an Order of this type.“ “The criteria which may be considered under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 are strictly limited;” “it is not possible to interpret the legislation in such a way…

A Remote video hearing is Totally unacceptable!

A Remote video hearing is Totally unacceptable!

Aside from the fact that these so called PROW inquiries Should be in a Court of Law not a village hall, they certainly should not be relegated to a ‘do it yourself’ Zoom meeting! Each time I consider any aspect of the PROW system I think that this pseudo judicial set up cannot possibly get any worse. I am continually proved wrong. If Norfolk County Council want Public Rights over anyones home or property then they should have to prove…

ANN’S MYROW DIARY W/C 21st JUNE 2020 Eleven Months Later!

Let’s not elaborate on this because in Public Rights of Way there are only three speeds SLOW, VERY SLOW AND STOP! Ok so we finally got the Order…….zzzzzzz Meanwhile we’ve played damage limitations and built a beautiful new house! Now please don’t get the idea we have any intention of giving up our fight for justice and common sense, along with all the other victims of this corrupt and ‘not fit for purpose’ system. We most certainly have not! Norfolk…

The Government have a duty to Get Deregulation Done

The Government have a duty to Get Deregulation Done

Originally footpaths were local and used by people for a purpose. The ‘rules’ now governing these paths are archaic and fail to meet the needs of todays society. Footpaths that used to be for getting to work, visiting a neighbour or going to church are now required for recreation and tourism. The demand is great from ‘extra’ users which now include horse riders,cyclists,4×4’s,motorbikes and walkers who no longer ‘need’ the paths but want them for recreation. The archaic laws allow…

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

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…
