Bumper Post Bag Of Directions From Sec of State For Calderdale.

Calderdale Council have received a no doubt unwanted post bag full of directions from the Secretary of State. The three directions affect 17 different public rights of way in the borough and relate to claims for higher bridleway rights.

When a member of the public makes a claim under the Wildlife & Countryside Act to modify the local Definitive Map & Statement a local authority has twelve months to determine the claim. Once the time is up the applicant can appeal to the Secretary of State for a direction.

In common with many authorities Calderdale cut its skilled rights of way staff and now uses the office junior and expensive consultants to do the work. Not the best approach or value for money.

The directions are here , here and here .
