I know that many people will be disappointed at this turn of events, especially given that St George’s School already has a public footpath passing through its grounds.
I trust that the matter can be resolved quickly as it was expected that the construction of the path could begin this spring. This path, walked by many, including me, for several decades, was awarded £110,000 by Elmbridge to enable people with disabilities to progress from Weybridge to Cowey Sale with ramped bridges over the Broadwater and Engine Rivers.
This would only be the first stage because once the path was in place it would open up the possibility of public funding for essential maintenance of the lake, which is pressingly needed.
As ever, I’ll keep you posted with developments.
