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.

The New Year's Day Run.
The Whippets Wake Up Race that the Village has hosted for many years, took on a new stance this year with a Traffic Restriction Order rather than the informal way in which the run has been organised in previous years.
This caused upset and confusion for the residents and visitors alike. The alternative routes would appear to have been planned by those that have little knowledge of the village. The Parish Council are in contact with North Somerset Council and have asked for a meeting with them and the organisers next year well in advance of any plans being made. This will ensure that if the race is to go ahead, there is a minimum of disturbance and that there is access to and from the village for residents & visitors alike during the two hours when the race takes place.

Councillor Jim MacDonald,
Chairman Kewstoke Parish Council.
