To Bridge Or Not To Bridge that is the question


This is the first example of a path ending abruptly at a river bank, just waiting for a footbridge to be built ... (at the Riverside development on the Mill Stream).

Builders need to add a certain amount of green space within a development, or in lieu of that provide access to green space some other way, like with a bridge.

The Riverside footbridge is currently awaiting a decision by the Vale. It will be paid for by the developer, and will not bump up our council tax. However, for one reason or another, footbridges do not always get built. It provides access for residents to the countryside, but on the otherhand it also acts as a shortcut for wanderers.
