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:

Meadow Park Footpath

There is a new Deregulation Act, shortly to come into effect, with which we will lose the right to use unregistered footpaths. That part of the footpath from Meadow Walk through the Amenity / Woodland to Meadow Park is unregistered. Bathford PC has decided that the footpath is sufficiently important for there to be an application for its registration. To help in registering it please see the information below letter plan application form
