ELM GROVE TO A477 FOOTPATH LINK

Work is due to commence on 20th September on the informal footpath link from Elm Grove to the A477 which was initially due to commence on 23rd June 2021, but was temporarily stopped in response to concerns about the proposed works and to allow time to consult.

Following a site meeting on 22nd June 2021 with residents and Cty Cllr Simon Hancock, it was clear that the scale of the scheme and the potential concern about children running through the gap in the hedge into cyclists or traffic on the main road was causing some concern. Therefore the scale of the scheme was reduced while achieving the desired link and adding a visual barrier to raise awareness of the point where the path meets the existing A477 shared use path.
