Alleged Public Footpath - Glynneath pdf icon PDF 250 KB

Report of the Head of Legal Services

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Decision:

 

That no modification order be made for the alleged public footpath along the path to the rear of house No’s 11 to 22 Park Avenue and No. 8 Earlsfield Close in the Community of Glynneath (as detailed in the circulated report).

 

Reasons for Decision:

 

(a)     The path between point A and point F (Park Avenue) during the relevant period varied and so the same route was not in use to satisfy the minimum period of 20 years uninterrupted use;

 

(b)     There is no evidence that point C joined a public highway throughout the relevant period and so the claimed public path did not terminate on a public highway during the relevant period; 

 

(c)     The application does not specify any other point east of point C as a place of public resort nor is there any consensus as to whether that point may have been during the relevant period;

 

(d)     The amount of people supporting this application within the relevant period is too low to be able to conclude that this can represent the public at large.

 

Implementation of Decision:

 

The decision will be implemented after the three day call in period.

 

Consultation:

 

This item has been subject to external consultation.
