GLOUCESTERSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL
TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF VARIOUS PUBLIC FOOTPATHS (FAIRFORD AND KEMPSFORD PARISHES) COTSWOLD DISTRICT
NOTICE Is hereby given that Gloucestershire County Council has made an Order to close temporarily under Sections 14,15 and 16 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act, 1984 (as amended) part of various Public Footpaths as defined in the Schedule below:
Public Footpath BKD 35 in the Parish of Kempsford is to be closed temporarily from its junction with the Whelford Road extending in a generally westerly direction for a distance of approximately 210 metres and then carrying on along BFA 32 in the Parish of Fairford for a further 1100 metres in a north westerly direction to its junction with Public Footpath BFA 31.
Public Footpath BFA 30 in the Parish of Fairford is to be closed temporarily from its junction with Public Footpath BFA 32 extending in a generally northerly direction for a distance of approximately 500 metres and then in a westerly direction for a further 700 metres to its junction with Public Footpath BFA 33.
The footpaths fall within the Parishes of Fairford and Kempsford in the Cotswold District, in the County of Gloucestershire.
The closure is necessary in the interest of public safety during construction works.
The Order came into force on the 22nd March 2021 and it was anticipated that it would remain in force for six months. However, it was not possible to complete the works within those six months and therefore it was necessary for an extension to be sought from the Secretary of State for Transport. This extension was granted and the footpath will now remain closed until 22nd March 2023, or until the works are complete whichever is earlier. For further information please contact Public Rights of Way on 08000 514514 or visit www.gloucestershire.gov.uk
Alternative Route - as signed on site.
Emergency access and pedestrian access will be maintained.
