Save the beautiful River Frome path

  • by: Simon Keyes
  • recipient: People who care about the environment in Frome, England

The longstanding informal path beside the river between Wallbridge and Adderwell in Frome is threatened by a private development which will block a crucial section.

There are commitments in the Local and Neighbourhood plans that the river corridor will be protected, but we need to make sure that Mendip District Council honours these.

The Friends of the River Frome would like to see this path protected for future generations, so we're organising a claim to Somerset County Council for this path to be designated as a Right of Way.

If you agree that continued public access to this wonderful stretch of river is important, please sign this petition by 15 June.

Great news - we did it! Somerset County Council have persuaded the developers to keep the path open, and the Right of Way application is looking good. Many thanks to everyone who took the trouble to make comments. It worked! Simon

Thanks so much for signing the River footpath petition. We've way exceeded our initial target of 200!

If you've used the path yourself, it would be great if you could complete an Evidence Form to support our claim. Download it here: http://www.onion.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Wallbridge-Adderwell-Path-Evidence-Form-1.pdf. You need to send a signed hard copy to the address shown.

We'll let you know what happens.
Feel free to get in touch
