Bringing People Together
As stated above a mild inconvenience is much preferred than an injury to a child or elderly person. Safety is everyone's responsibility, not just the council mate.

However, the detour is significant when walking to the station .....Erm how come? If you go up Beards Hill and continue straight on down the Ally there is no detour, let alone a significant one?Unless we are talking about Fulwell Station :)
For info - Given the council is now are repairing the gates, I have asked to open the opposite gate for pedestrian use, so people are not walking onto our land in the future to gain access to the library.
I have also raised the issue regarding the surface of the path being a risk to public users given the degraded and washed out surface. I believe the path should be in the same condition as the Beard's Hill path.
I think this will give a positive outcome for us (as the owner's of the land) and pedestrians who would like to access via that path. I will keep you updated once i hear back from the council.
Agreed, the Beard's Hill path is a better path to go down and it is not a significant detour.
Just measured it, via Beards Hill is significantly longer.
If you class 1 metre as significant ;)
