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. We were looking to replace 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 did therefore report this problem to ESCC who, without too much delay, carried out work to improve the fencing.
