Public consultation: application to divert public bridleway 352 (Cranleigh)

Public Notice

Proposed diversion of Public Bridleway 352 (Cranleigh)
Borough of Waverley
Section 119 Highways Act 1980

Surrey County Council has received an application from the Wey and Arun Canal Trust to divert part of public bridleway no. 352 (Cranleigh) as shown on the accompanying plan no. 3/1/5/H50.

The diversion has been applied for in the interests of the public. The canal trust intends to restore the nearby section of canal and construct a new towpath to carry the diverted bridleway in order to provide a car free waterside route.

The existing bridleway runs along a shared private access between points A and B on the plan.

The proposed diversion route would leave the driveway at point A and follow a parallel route north on the new towpath for 340 metres via point C before rejoining the existing bridleway at point B.

The diversion route would be 3.0 metres wide with a crushed stone surface and a 1.0 metre grass verge between the bridleway and the edge of the canal.

If you have any comments on the application, please send them in writing to the following by Monday 25 March 2024.

Rik Catling, Countryside Access, Surrey County Council, Whitebeam Lodge,
Merrow Depot, Merrow Lane, Guildford GU4 7BQ
Telephone 07890 944 220

Please include your reasons for supporting or opposing the proposal. If you require any further information or would like a copy of this notice or the plan, please email or telephone the above.

If the Council decides to make an order then it will be advertised in the local paper and by notice on site for a further 28-day period.

Any personal information that you provide in response to this consultation will be used to help determine whether or not the Council should make a diversion order. In due course it may be necessary to disclose any responses to third parties or the Planning Inspectorate, or to include the information provided in reports or inquiry documents that will be publicly available. If you do not wish for your information to be used in this way, please state this as part of your response, in which case any responses that you provide will still be considered but may be given less weight as a result.
