Footpath alongside the railway line
Posted on: 20th March 2018

A new Act of Parliament requires us to register, or lose, all footpaths which are assumed to have right of way.

The footpath alongside the railway line by Bathford Bridge, on land owned by Network Rail has, after an application by Bathford Parish Council, been registered by BANES. There is, however, a 42 day window for an appeal so the registration is not immediate. If Network Rail do appeal, there will be a public enquiry. The Parish Council believes that the path is well used and should be a public footpath and will give evidence to this effect at any enquiry.

The very thorough decision documents are available:
