Case Study

Footpath works Stoke Canon

Stoke Canon Parish Council have been awarded funding for the upgrade and widening on an existing footpath.

The footpath between Rewe and Stoke Canon along the A396 needed upgrading. The usage of the path has been restrictive due to problems experienced regarding the maintenance of the surface and nearby trees which were planted at the time of its initial construction.

The upgrade has facilitated far greater number of movements’ between residents of the two communities. The better surface may also encourage greater use of future wheelchair users and prams.

It has been agreed that Highways would slurry coat the surface to prolong the life of the path.
