NYCC bulletin - 24 June

PROW - between Station Road and Main Street

The Public Right of Way (PROW) that runs between Station Road and Main Street is the responsibility of  NYCC.  Officers have not been on site visits due to restrictions, but the progress made has been reported to NYCC . They are assessing the site and have to replace the damaged fencing and it is likely that another Closure Notice will be served to cover the period for the work to be carried out . The timing has been unfortunate but hopefully back on track now and we will keep posting any updates on our website and the Riccall Park facebook page, which we are currently using for current issues.
