Donna MacRae, Secretary, Stapleford Community Group writes: This is a Public Footpath used by 100s of people and will doubt have a knock on effect to Trowell Garden Centre as many people use this Public Footpath to access the local business.
The Public Footpath has been blocked off from both sides. So anyone coming from the other side will have to turn back. Many people walk along the old Nottingham Canal from Coventry Lane then across Field Farm. Sadly the path has been blocked.
The question you have to ask is why have the two County Councillors not made anyone aware of this before it’s happened.
Stapleford Councillor Richard MacRae has contacted Broxtowe Borough Council Planning Department and asked what is going on and is now awaiting a reply as the closer of this much used Public Footpath has never been mentioned in the past.
With the Summer Holidays starting next week this Public Path would be used more than ever but now access has been cut off.
For the past 6 years we have also organised Community Walks which always start at the entrance to Field Farm and will not be able to hold our ever popular walks now due to the route being blocked.
