BCP are surfacing the long walked path that leads from Woodbury Avenue towards the junction of Throop and Holdenhurst as shown on the map. It is yet to be recorded formally as a new Public Right of Way but seeing as this was an oft-requested improvement in the local forum, BCP have spent part of this year’s capital budget on getting what is clearly an important improvement for the local community. The informal path that had existed had become overgrown and totally impassable as it required so much maintenance

BCP Council commenced grass cutting in the conurbation on April 4th and whilst it was envisaged to take approximately 6 weeks, due to recent Bank Holidays and favourable weather for grass growth they are slightly delayed in completing the first scheduled cut.
