(Public footpath No.50 A Cannock Town)
Rail Crossing Extinguishment and definitive map and statement modification order 2020
This Order is made by Staffordshire County Council (“the authority") under section 118A of the Highways Act 1980 ("the 1980 Act").
Public Footpath Cannock Town No 50A in the authority's area described below crosses a railway otherwise than by a tunnel or bridge.
It appears to the authority that it is expedient in the interests of the safety of members of the public using, or likely to use, the said footpath that it should be stopped up.
Cannock Chase District Council has been consulted as required by section 120(2) of the 1980 Act.
Network Rail have agreed to defray any expenses which the authority may incur in connection with the erection and maintenance of barriers and signs.
This Order is also made under Section 53A(2) of the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 (“the 1981 Act”) because it appears to the authority that the Definitive Map and Statement for the District of Cannock Chase require modification in consequence of the occurrence of an event specified in Section 53(3)(a)(i) of the 1981 Act, namely the stopping up (as authorised by this Order) of a highway shown or required to be shown in the Map and Statement.
This Order extinguishes the public right of way over the land situate off Pebble Mill Drive, Cannock shown by a continuous bold line on the map attached to this Order and described in Part 1 of the Schedule after 14 days from the date of confirmation of this Order but where immediately before the date on which the footpath is diverted there is apparatus under, in, on, over, along or across it belonging to statutory undertakers for the purpose of carrying on their undertaking, the undertakers shall continue to have the same rights in respect of the apparatus as they then had.
