Draft Local Plan - Supplementary Consultation

Question 37 - Compensatory Provision for removal of land from Green Belt.

Representation ID: 8720

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Cov, Warks, Solihull Local Access Forum

Representation Summary:

Loss of well used footpath network around Barratt's Farm giving easy access to the countryside from Balsall Common East away from busy roads eg Truggist Lane, Waste Lane, Lavender Hall Lane
Is concerned about the loss of easy access to the countryside provided by the network of footpaths on Barratt's Farm. These footpaths form one of the most used footpath networks in the Borough forming a circular walk of between 2 and 4 miles which is ideal for walking, running and amenity enjoyment of the countryside.
The footpaths are easily accessed from Balsall Common East of A452 and are popular with large numbers of regular walkers who have easy access via the paths from quiet residential roads with little traffic.
I hope that this ease of access to the countryside for residents of all ages will remain and not be complicated or made impossible by having to walk on main roads without pavements such as Truggist Lane ( with its dangerous commercial HGV traffic), Waste Lane and Lavender Hall Lane which are both blighted by fast and, therefore, dangerous traffic.
