Holmfirth Footpath 60 – Sec of States Decision – Order Not Made.


The secretary of state has declined to make the order diverting Holmfirth Footpath 60 at Wolfstones. In the words of the decision –

The Secretary of State notes the Inspector’s observations and his particular
conclusions at IR7.43 – 7.49 that the benefits of the scheme and of stopping up and
diverting the highway, as conferred by the Order, would not outweigh the
disadvantages put forward in the objections. He considers that the inconvenience that
would be caused to highway users to be of a significance where he cannot support the
implementation of the Order.

Here is the inspectors report.
