Consultation Footpath 20 Kirkheaton

The Kirklees Public Rights of Way (PROW) office has received a request to add a footpath to the Definitive Map, which means it would become legal public right of way.  It runs from Liley Lane to Carr Mount in Kirkheaton, please see the map below for full details.  Officers are looking at the evidence of how much this route is used, and how long it has been used in the past.

The PROW is particularly interested in receiving statements covering usage prior to September 2017.  If you would like this route to become a legal public right of way and have used it often in the past, please contact the PROW (contact details below) giving full details of how you used the footpath.  In particular, they would like to know about the following:

  • Your use of the path – for example, over what period of time did you use the path?  How often?  For what purposes did you use the path?  Where were you going to?
  • Use of the path by other people
  • The presence of gates, stiles or other obstructions
  • Any signs or notices on the path, and what they said
  • If you were ever challenged when using the path, or challenged anyone else
  • If you have been given permission, or have given others permission to use the path
  • Anything else you feel may be relevant in establishing the status of the path

If possible, please include a map or plan showing the route to which you are referring.

Any comments you make or evidence you provide may eventually become public and may be used in evidence at a Public Inquiry.

Please submit any evidence or comments about this path to the Public Rights of Way Team at:
