Highways Act 1980 - South Gloucestershire Council (Footpaths OAN 72 and OAN 73 at Pear Tree Farm, Earthcott Green, Alveston) Public Path Diversion and Definitive Map and Statement Modification Order 2022

The Council made an order on 9 March 2022 which if confirmed as an unopposed order will divert lengths of public footpath OAN72 and OAN 73 at Pear Tree Farm, Earthcott Green, Alveston.  A copy of the order as made (which includes a plan); an explanatory statement and a copy of the Notice of making are included in this consultation.  The notice gives full details of the affected route and how objections and representations about the order may be made.  If no such representations or objections are duly made, or if any so made are withdrawn, South Gloucestershire District Council may itself confirm the order as an unopposed order.  If the order is sent to the Secretary of State for the Environment for confirmation any representations or objections which have not been withdrawn will be sent with the order.

The deadline for the receipt of objections and representations is 21 April 2022.

This consultation has now closed and we are analysing the results, which will be published here in due course.

Supporting Documents

  • Web Response Form
    Your objection/representation will be noted. At the end of the objection period copies of all comments and objections (that are not subsequently withdrawn) received in respect of this matter will be forwarded to the Public Rights of Way team for investigation. A report will be prepared which will incorporate a summary of the objections and comments and which will be presented to the Public Rights of Way and Commons Registration Sub Committee for consideration in light of the representations received. The Sub Committee can decide (a) that the objections are not "duly made", and so in effect that the order is unopposed. If this is the case the order can be confirmed as such; (b) that the objections are duly made, and that the matter should be passed to the Secretary of State, with a request that he confirms the order, or (c) that in light of the objection the matter should be passed to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs with a request that a decision is made

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
