Would you like this in your garden?
This footpath is shown by Open Spaces as an example of what is happening when Councils make cuts to footpath maintenance. This is the sort of vandalism and rubbish that homeowners who are burdened with Rights of way through their gardens are expected to put up with.
If you received a letter out of the blue saying that the council were claiming a Right of Way through your garden would you wonder why Open Spaces and Ramblers were supportive of this? If you had this sort of rubbish and fly tipping happening in your garden would you not want the footpath diverted. Would you expect anyone to object? Well Open Spaces and Ramblers do.
They object on 'historical' grounds.....two hundred years ago there was a footpath for a few village farm workers and it went through your home....it got 'lost' and now that it's been found it belongs to us and 'everyone' else in the world and tough luck if it wrecks your garden,your privacy,your security and costs you thousands of pounds and years to defend.
We will also take 'all of your life' too because we will continue to object for years because we know that the public purse will fund lots of research and public enquiries(which we don't have to pay for) and you will eventually run out of money and energy to defend your home. Oh and while we are at it we will make out that we are the 'goodies' and that those who are forced to defend their human rights and their homes are the 'baddies' who are denying us our 'rights'......win win........oh and shall we ask the public for some more funds to help us?.....what a good idea!!!
