Over two months ago on February 20th, The Phoenix Trust sent the email published below to Staffordshire County Council asking for information about the legal status of the Oakamoor to Denstone Greenway in the Churnet Valley.
As yet we have not received a reply. How long does it take Staffordshire County Council to answer a few simple questions?
THE EMAIL WHICH HAS NOT BEEN REPLIED TO
Subject:Oakamoor to Denstone Greenway
Members of The Friends of the Churnet Valley, a conservation group of which I am both chairperson and patron, have approached the Phoenix Trust’s Community Advice Centre for help.
The members are very concerned about the future of the Oakamoor to Denstone Greenway. However, they are not certain about the Greenway’s legal status which we have been told could be a permissive path or a bridleway. In these circumstances, before advising them, I should be grateful if you could tell me:
- When the Greenway was created
- Its present legal status.
I understand that the Greenway’s legal status may have changed at least once since it was created. If this information is correct could you let me have details of the changes and when they were made?
