Footpath and fence from Bonners to Budletts roundabout

Considering the number of children that use the path on the top of the bank leading from the school to Budletts roundabout on a daily basis, we felt that the fence required extensive repairs or replacement from a safety aspect.  In 2019 we were looked into to replacing the fence and it was our intention to involve the Footpaths Group in this.  However we were advised of the possible problems of insurance and public liability arising from such action as the path does not form part of East Sussex County Council (ESCC) footpaths.

We therefore reported the problem to ESCC Highways who undertook to inspect the fence and take appropriate action taken.
