Public Footpath 16 (Leatherhead) and Town Path D2527 Temporary Closure Order 2022


Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, Section 14(1)
The Surrey County Council
Public Footpath No.16 (Leatherhead) and Town Path (D2527) Cannon Grove to Footpath 16 (Leatherhead)
Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2022

On 1 September 2022 Surrey County Council made a temporary order to prohibit all traffic on foot or any other means from entering or proceeding along Public Footpath No.16 (Leatherhead) from its junction with Cannon Grove (Grid Ref. 515497 156359), to the junction with Mill Lane and Public Footpath 60, for approximately 610m. The order also prohibited traffic on foot or any other means from entering or proceeding along the section of Public Path D2527 between Cannon Grove and Footpath 16 for approximately 50 metres.

The Order is necessary for reason of public safety due to stabilisation works taking place on the slope adjacent to the footpath. It has been operation from 2 September 2022 and was due to expire on 23 January 2023. Due to recent flooding of the site which has delayed completion of the works, on 16 January 2023 the Secretary of State extended the closure for a second time, until 23 February 2023, or the completion of works, whichever is earlier.

The alternative route is as follows: From the western end of the closure, proceed east along Cannon Grove for approx. 160m until you reach the junction with Path D2527. Follow the road right and proceed in a southerly direction along Cannon Grove and then Raymead Way for approx. 390m until you reach the junction with Cobham Road. Turn left onto Cobham Road, and head east for approx. 160m, before turning left at the junction with Footpath 60. Proceed in a generally north-eastern direction along Footpath 60 for approx. 490m to reach the eastern end of the closure and the junction with Mill Lane.

The temporary closure will only be in operation when appropriate road traffic signs are displayed on site by the County Council or an authorised person acting on its behalf. Access to properties will not be affected.

The 'Surrey County Council Public Footpath No. 16 (Leatherhead) and D2527 Cannon Lane to Footpath 16 (Leatherhead) (Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order 2022) will be made by Surrey County Council under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
