The planning application claims that no Rights of Way would need to be extinguished as part of the proposal.  However, fencing the football areas would potentially affect existing Rights of Way established by dog walkers and others crossing the area, if these pitches are to be locked. We believe that as the area is designated as “Open Space” a public right of way has been established across the entire site. In addition the extension to the existing leisure centre seeks to build across an established public right of way, currently running along the front entrance to the centre and out to the fields and on this basis the proposal is unacceptable and should be refused.
