We request that the new pavement is extended directly to the access road to Stainbank Green, uphill on the left of the image.
This week we are invited to comment on application SL/2022/1077
I request an urgent on-site consultation, residents and planners, to ensure that the direct and continuous footway from the junction of Underwood/Brigsteer Road to Scout Scar is fit for purpose.
SL/2022/1077 is written by planners for planners. We who walk this way daily, this millenium, have our feet on the ground. We ‘re local, we live here, we are invested in this place. Ours is the immediate experience, not the theory.
A footway is for feet, it’s in the name. The only wheels on a pedestrian pavement should be pushchairs and the disabled. So please arrange an on-site consultation BEFORE the plan is considered.
As the Brigsteer Rise development progresses I’ve studied what pedestrians need, in consultation with residents. I have shared evidence and suggestions with SLDC. I urge you to read 3 blogs on my website
