Footpath from Moor Lane towards Bramcote Hills Park.
Paul Wolverson, Head of Environmental Services, Broxtowe Borough Council writes to Councillor Ian Tyler:
Further to your email regarding the footpath closures I have contacted VIA and they have confirmed that the path is not a recorded right of way. VIA are contacting the school to find out what the situation is regarding the closure and inform them that they have the potential for a claimed Right of Way if they don’t/can’t reopen the path.
I’ll keep you informed when VIA update me.

It would seem that the blocked footpath to Bramcote Hills Park has been unblocked. Direct action apparently!
There was no excuse to block it in the first place, as it has been as it is, for many decades.
With all the signs which have been placed at entrances to the park, which state public access is not allowed, it gave the impression that this was another attempt by school authorities to prevent free access, on what is public land.
Editor: This is getting interesting. It seems the phantom footpath opener has lost the opportunity to claim a Right of Way as well a damaging somebody else’s property.
