High Hurstwood footpath Buxted 24 which runs from Chillies Lane to Perryman's Lane has been closed for 15 years due to a landslide that collapsed the bridge and public walkway.
The council has said “there is nothing the County Council can realistically do to expedite a solution or carry out works to the footpath until the property stabilisation works have been done".
The council can divert the footpath away from the area of the landslide. A diversion of 10-20 metres would enable a new bridge to be safely built and the footpath reopened.
A public footpath can be legally diverted if this diversion benefits the public and we demand that the council takes this action before yet further delay is caused by waiting on completion of the property stabilisation work.
We have been without the benefit of this beautiful and
beneficial footpath for far too long!
