To seek approval for the temporary closure of Hoggs Hill Lane (Altcar Footpath No.5) Public Right of Way, Little Altcar/Formby (between St Lukes Church Road and Altcar footpath number 6) to facilitate its upgrade from natural surface track to a 3m wide stone path with timber edges.
(1) The temporary closure of Hoggs Hill Lane (Altcar Footpath No.5) Public Right of Way, Little Altcar/Formby (between St Lukes Church Road and Altcar footpath no. 6) be approved
(2) the necessary legal procedures, including those of public consultation and advertising the Council’s intention to implement the Order, be approved;
Reasons for the Decision(s):
The Council has the power to make temporary Traffic Regulation Orders under (Section 14 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984).
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected:
The site is bounded to the south by Altcar Training Camp and to the north by a ditch / farm fields and as such adequate space to provide parallel pedestrian routes are not viable during the construction phase. A closure is therefore required in order to carry out the works in a safe manner.
