Path signs are a legal requirement where a path leaves the public road.
In a very positive move Kirklees Council have bought enough signs and poles to erect 500 footpath/bridleway signs across the district. These signs are vital in indicating the existence of public paths where they leave the public road. Their presence gives confidence to members of the public and encourages use.
Well done Kirklees!
(Now might be a good time to let kirklees know of any missing signs via firstname.lastname@example.org ? )
