Avington Footpath

Post date: Apr 14, 2021 11:12:51 AM

West Berkshire Council has received a claim for a footpath to be established at Avington so that the current footpath would allow access to the A4 ad vice versa.

West Berks Council has written to the Parish Council as follows:

"In 2020, we received an application from the Ramblers asking WBC to make an order to record a public footpath across the end of Avington Manor drive area,

as shown on the attached plan. We are now investigating the matter and looking into what available evidence there is.

I would be grateful if the parish council could let me have any comment or information about use of the route, particularly any recollections about the history

of any access/closures/signs/problems/access in the past.

It would be particularly useful if any parishioners that have ever use the route could fill in a user evidence form (see attached) and mark the route on the blank ‘UEF’ map attached - this is a two page questionnaire with a map attached that people can fill in to give information such as how long many years they have used the route, the frequency of use, and any recollections about signs/closures/problems/events on the route etc."

Maps and the necessary evidence forms are attached:

Anyone who has knowledge of use of the claimed path may complete and submit an evidence form and map to West Berks Council.
