Sending in these reports is particularly important as Clitheroe Ramblers are now registered under the Local Delivery Scheme for repairing footpath problems. Lancashire County Council, having received a report in one of our parishes will prioritise them, and offer out repair work to our group. So to keep us active we need a regular supply of reports submitted in order to improve our footpath network.
Local Delivery Scheme. This is not now allowing us to do any work other than vegetation clearance this year. Our maintenance team will not be allowed to carry out any stile, gate or signpost maintenance, so we can expect further deterioration in our footpaths. We will be seeking advice from headquarters on this situation. We still request that faults are logged and reported on the LCC ‘Report a Highway Fault’ system, but please stress if there is danger to the public so the report does not get buried in the massive backlog.
