Firstly I am pleased to report that the deep mud under the gate on Wilmslow bridleway 32 has finally been resurfaced.
Bridleway Wilmslow 150 over the old tip is now reopened. The surface on the bark track is really nice!
I have just received the paper work for the first meeting of the East Cheshire Rights of Way Forum to be held on 28th June.
Firstly there is a questionnaire, which can be completed on line on the link below, where you can comment on the improvements you would like to see in the update of the Rights of Way Improvement Plan now being written.
This will be looking at how well the Rights of Way network meets present and likely future needs and will construct a 15 year strategy with a 3 year implementation cycle.
The meeting is also considering the use of volunteers to survey the RoW network. This has been resisted in the past but financial pressures must mean this will happen. As NCR is now preparing a survey of horses in the area at their request and with some financial support I am sure this will happen. I for one would be happy to 'survey' bridleways as I use them; I do this anyway and report problems as they crop up.
The meeting is also being asked to look specifically at the safety of links between RoW, a major problem for riders.
Remember, NCR did very well in the previous Rights of Way Improvement Plan, with many of our suggestions implemented, so it is worth the effort to make an input.
