Reporting Footpaths, Bridleways & Stiles made easier!

Reporting Footpaths, Bridleways & Stiles made easier!

Published: 28 Jun 22

The Parish Council hopes we have made things easier for reporting any issues or concerns. Identifying footpaths, bridleways etc can be confusing as to who is responsible. Using the Parish Council website please go to the ' St Mewan Info' toolbar, drop down to Parish Footpaths, Bridleways and Stiles. Clicking on the map will identify the path number and clicking on the schedule list underneath will show what the Parish Council are responsible for. Any item not identified on the schedule is a Cornwall Council matter which you can report direct. As a guide, footpaths should be trimmed to a width of 1.5 metres and bridleways should be thinned to a width of 2.5 metres. Thank you. Read More...
