  • I run along here every day and today I took my nephew who was on his bike. The pathway is so over grown today we both got stung numerous times by stingers! There is no way to navigate round it. This needs sorting ASAP as it a popular route for walkers/ runners and bikers

  • 6 months is far too long: I and others use this path daily to commute. There is no safe alternative on foot or by bike along the A4500. The path is already almost completely blocked by nettles and overhanging trees, and it will only get worse throughout the summer. Please make this a higher priority.
