Type of Comment
Thank you for your emailed letter dated 4th September to the Ramblers Association which has been passed to me for attention as the Local Footpath Secretary covering Grange park. Commenting from the Ramblers perspective the proposed enhancements to the PROW, Bridleway LF1, are not essential, and to the existing informal network of paths in Alamein Wood not desirable. The inevitable increase in traffic on Quinton road will make the connecting walk between LF1 and Footpath Quinton KY4 more hazardous than it is already. In general terms we agree with the strongly expressed views of other respondees as to the unsuitability and inappropriateness of this development. We therefore object to the Application.
