Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981

Staffordshire County Council

Public Footpath No.32 (part) Barton under Needwood Parish)

Public Path Diversion and Definitive Map and Statement Modification Order 2019

 


 

This Order is made by Staffordshire County Council (“the authority”) under Section 257 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 because it is satisfied that it is necessary to divert the footpath to which this Order relates in order to enable development to be carried out namely the extraction of sand and gravel at Tucklesholme Quarry. 

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 Borough of East Staffordshire require modification in consequence of the occurrence of an event specified in Section 53(3)(a)(i) of the 1981 Act, namely the diversion (as authorised by this Order) of a highway shown or required to be shown in the Map and Statement.

By This Order:

1. The public right of way over the land situate at Barton under Needwood Parish and shown by a bold continuous line on the map contained in this Order and described in Part 1 of the Schedule to this Order shall be stopped up after 28 days from the date of confirmation of this Order, and thereupon the Definitive Map for the Borough of East Staffordshire shall be modified by deleting from it that public right of way. 

2. There shall be created to the reasonable satisfaction of the Highways Authority an alternative highway for use as a replacement for the said footpath as provided in Part 2 of the Schedule and shown by a bold broken line on the map contained in this Order and thereupon the Definitive Map for the Borough of East Staffordshire shall be modified by adding that path to it. 

3. The following works shall be carried out in relation to the highway described in Part 2 of the Schedule: 

i) The provision of a constructed footpath to a width of not less than 1.8 metres with the path surface to be thoroughly compacted to provide a firm, even, free draining surface.

ii) The provision of signposts at point A on the Order plan (420878 318750) and point D on the Order plan (421168 318357) and waymarks along the route to be provided by the County Council and maintained by the landowner.

iii) A 12ft long, 6ft wide culvert across the watercourse at point F on the Order plan (420936 318630).

iv) A pedestrian kissing gate in accordance with BS5709:2018 at point D (421168 318357) on the Order plan. 

4. The landowner is required to pay for the cost of carrying out the said works. 

5. Where immediately before the date on which the footpath is diverted there is apparatus under, in, on along or across it, belonging to statutory undertakers for the purposes of carrying on their undertaking, the undertakers shall continue to have the same rights in respect of the apparatus as they then had. 

6. The diversion of the footpath shall have effect on the date on which the authority certify that the works in Paragraph 4 have been satisfactorily completed.
