Society calls for paths say

The Open Spaces Society has called for planning authorities to notify organisations representing path users when an application affects a public right of way.

The society was responding to DCLG consultation on publicity for applications. General secretary Kate Ashbrook said: "Too often applications have a detrimental effect on public paths adjoining or crossing the site."

She added: "Although there is a requirement to advertise if an application affects a public right of way, this is subjective and may be neglected. We are dismayed that the DCLG proposes to remove the requirement to advertise such applications in local papers and rely on local authority websites."
