Byway between Cuby Close and Reskivers officially confirmed by Secretary of State after public inquiry
In December 2016, Cornwall Council made an Order to designate the paths from Cuby Close to the bottom of Lady Lane, and the path from there to Reskivers as public rights of way. It has been decided that they should be designated as restricted byways which means that they are open to pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders, persons leading horses and carriages other than mechanically propelled vehicles. In addition, Lady Lane will be changed from being a footpath to a restricted byway.
Representations and objections to the order were made by a number of residents who were primarily concerned with the designation as anything other than a footpath. Because of the number of objections, the case was referred to the Secretary of State and a planning inspector was appointed to determine whether or not the order should be confirmed.
After a short inquiry, the inspector published her report and confirmed that the order was properly made. Cornwall Council has now published the confirmed order.
