GLEN CARAVAN PARK

For a number of years, walkers have been confused as to their right to walk the driveway accessing The Glen Caravan Park. For the past 75 years, Cleobury residents can recall using this route for access to schools, work and recreation. A few years ago signs were erected stating that it was not a public right of way. Subsequent to a public inquiry held in April, the Planning Inspector has confirmed (subject to appeal) the legal order brought by Shropshire Council for the surfaced driveway to become a public footpath. This runs from from Catherton Rd to where it meets the footpath to Workhouse Bank.

The Planning Inspector also confirmed the legal order to extend this public footpath from the driveway through to the bridge before Cleanly Seat. However, the original path line was obstructed some years ago and is subject to negotiation between Shropshire Council and the Caravan Park as there is no accessible route at this time. This will replace the inaccessible public footpath (FP44R) erroneously shown to the north of the brook on official maps since 1965.

Please respect the residents privacy when walking through the caravan park by staying on the public footpaths. Excessive dog fouling has been reported along the drive, so please keep your dogs on a lead and clear up after them.
