C87 Haxted Road, Lingfield - Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2020
Surrey County Council propose to make the above-mentioned Temporary Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the effect of which will be to prohibit vehicles from entering or proceeding in the entire length of C87 Haxted Road, Lingfield. This Traffic Order is required to enable BT Openreach to carry out tree cutting and/or poling and cabling works. These works are anticipated to be carried out between the hours of 9:30am and 3:30pm, within 5 days of the 12 month period of operation of this Temporary Order that commences on 21 September 2020. Advanced warning signs will be displayed and the temporary closure will only operate when the relevant traffic signs are displayed. Access for emergency services, residents, businesses, pedestrians, cyclists and equestrians will be maintained at all times. The vehicular diversion route will be via Haxted Road, Lingfield Road, Mont St Aignan Way, High Street, Mill Hill Edenbridge, Marsh Green Road, Moor Lane, Racecourse Road, Town Hill, Plaistow Street, Godstone Road and Lingfield Common Road.
MESSAGE FROM SURREY COUNTY COUNCIL
Surrey County Council has received an application to divert Public Footpath No. 412a (Dormansland). The proposed alternative route is shown on the accompanying plan (Drawing No. 3/1/29/H14) between points A–E–D.
The diversion has been applied for in the interests of the landowner who states that, although the footpath is not well used, it nonetheless raises real security issues. The footpath currently runs along the driveway to Lullenden Manor, and the applicant would like to erect a locked gate close to Point A on the plan to provide physical security for the buildings that are accessed from the driveway. Although the new path is over a grass field rather than on the surfaced driveway, the applicant believes it will be no less convenient as the gradients are broadly similar and the ground is well drained so that the surface is firm. The proposed route is on slightly higher ground so users will benefit from better views. The applicant believes the diversion is much more typical of a walk in the countryside and provides a safe environment away from the domestic traffic of his house and household.
The Council can make a diversion order if it is satisfied that the new path would be substantially as convenient as the old one. The Council must also consider the effect that the diversion would have on public enjoyment of the path as a whole. We would therefore like to obtain the views of anyone affected by the proposal so that an informed decision can be taken on whether to proceed.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries, otherwise I would be grateful to receive your comments by Monday 19 October 2020.
