I have contacted Surrey countryside access team. They tell me that they have met up with the health club which is the main landowner, and a plan has been agreed. Surrey intend to clear the path alongside Broadwater, which will then help the health club establish which route they are agreeing to dedicate. Once all the legal dedication agreements have been put in place we can start with the surfacing. It is likely to take about six to twelve months.
I have asked for a plan of the route at the eastern end to ensure all path route are protected (black to Oatlands Drive – red to Thames Path and Green to Cowey Sale). If you want to be part of a team to register all the bridleways and footpath in the town then please contact me.
