Proposal to Divert Part of Footpath SHE/565 at Brunswick School, Linking Bridby Street and Station Road, Woodhouse S13

Report of the Director Of Streetscene And Regulation



Mark Reeder (Technical Officer) attended the meeting and presented the report.



The Highway Authority had received an application from the City Council’s Education Department requesting a diversion of footpath SHE/565.  The footpath currently runs directly through the school grounds and separates the main school from the sports facilities.



No objections had been received from the statutory undertakers, emergency services and other relevant bodies.  Public consultation would be carried out once the Order was made.





  1. No objections be raised to the proposed diversion of part of definitive public footpath SHE/565, as shown on the plan at Appendix A to the report, subject to satisfactory arrangements being made with Statutory Undertakers in connection with any of their mains and services that may be affected; and


  1. Authority be given to the General Counsel to:


a.    Take all necessary action to divert the footpath under the powers contained within Section 119 of the Highways Act 1980; and


b.    Confirm the Order as an Unopposed Order, in the event of no objections being received, or any objections received being resolved.
