CLP: Footpaths & Pavements

Home » CLP: Footpaths & Pavements

The main reason provided by individuals in the questionnaire for choosing to live in Church Minshull was to be in the countryside. Our local area affords us great views and relative peace and quiet. It also provides plenty of places to go walking. However after traffic, the pavements (or footways) and footpaths were the next most popular area of concern.
At the consultation events a number of issues were raised:

  • Poor or poorly located street lighting
  • Overgrown hedges both next to footways and footpaths
  • Dangerous sections of road on the outskirts of the village with no footway
  • Non-inviting appearance of the Village Hall car park
  • Steep and failing footpath access to the canal

This theme links to the environment theme in the desire to develop some volunteer activities and gain recognition of the lovely area we live, for example entering Church Minshull for community awards.
