Rhineland progress report

South Gloucestershire rights-of-way officers have the blocked paths in hand and have instructed their contractors accordingly.

The stile/footbridge was damaged by another set of contractors, who were employed by Redrow to remove a hedge and make my directions harder to follow! A search of the internet revealed that Redrow have had outline planning permission to build on this land since 1957. The latest scheme was for the Severnside Stadium plus housing, but this ran into difficulties due to objections to increasing traffic on the road from Pilning to Easter Compton.

I doubt whether another scheme will be put forward before the end of the housing recession.
