SAND DUNES WORK.

​​(Posted 12/02/2020)

The Environment Agency will shortly be carrying out work on the sand dunes. A recent inspection of the dunes flagged up that they need attention to combat the erosion that has been taking place.
They will be blocking up some of the lesser used entrances to the beach and erecting some new Chestnut fencing which will allow the sand to build up behind it.

STATEMENTS BY KEWSTOKE PARISH COUNCIL.

Footpath Crookes Lane - UPDATE 04/02/20.
We are pleased to report that the land owners have now approached the Parish Council regarding the granting of a new easement agreement for the path on Crookes Lane between the Village Hall & the Bay Bar. The Parish Council are actively participating in negotiations with all parties to secure the footpath for our community and visitors to Kewstoke.
As a council, we are ever mindful of the fact that any agreement will ultimately be funded by residents in their payment of the Parish Council precept to the North Somerset Council Community charge. With this in mind we aim to secure an agreement that will be in the best interests of parishioners whilst also securing the long term future of the footpath.

Councillor Jim MacDonald
Chairman Kewstoke Parish Council.

Footpath Crookes Lane.
The easement agreement with the previous owner of the land on which the footpath in Crookes Lane runs, expired in late December. The path runs between the Village Hall and the Chip Shop. The present landowners have agreed to come back to the Parish Council with their proposals for a new easement agreement. Whilst this is being negotiated, the landowners have agreed that the footpath remain open for use by the public. The Parish Council look forward to working with the landowner in achieving this agreement, which we hope will be of benefit to all parties and the safety of the residents and visitors who use it.

Councillor Jim MacDonald
Chairman Kewstoke Parish Council.
