Well used parts of our bridleways/ Greenways are now going to be surfaced with Tarmac making them unsuitable for horses and in the winter months when frost and ice set in totally unusable for anybody!!
Some parts of the new Greeneays have already been pathed in a gritty gravel which I feel is perfect as is for all walkers, bikers, horses and wheel chair users, it also blends in to the countryside better and does not ice over, unlike Tarmac!
Please use this petition to voice your opinion on the matter as the council have not consulted the general public (Greenway users)
The full details of the paths can be found:
IF TARMAC IS USED THEN DURING THE ENTIRE WINTER MONTHS THE PATHS WILL BE UNUSABLE BUT IF THE LESS EXPENSIVE GRAVEL IS USED EVERYBODY CAN CONTINUE TO USE ALL YEAR ROUND!
