Pavement outside Railway Wharf, Station Road – at present this pavement (in front of Ciao Bella and Motorsport Worldwide) is NOT a public right of way. The Council wants to apply to North Somerset Council to change this but we need your help.
There have been recent planning applications at the property which, if they had been approved, would have meant that the pavement could no longer be used as a safe walk way by pedestrians. A letter explaining more about this is available here. If you use this pavement regularly and feel that it is important to retain it, we would be most grateful if you could complete a Public Right of Way User Evidence Statement, marking the location of the pavement on the map at the end of the form. The letter and Statement will be delivered to houses near Railway Wharf and should be available in local shops soon. If you have any problems completing the form or would like a copy emailed to you please contact us. Completed forms should be returned to us by the end of September.
