UPDATE. Francis still blocks the footpath and calls the Police if anyone tries to use it. In the papers disclosed to the Inquiry is a notice that he has applied for Planning Permission to build on the ground in that area, there was no map produced.
A group, Sergeant Thomas, Nat Walton of the WWNT, John Hayes of C21 and the Footpath Officer PCC are holding a meeting to agree a compromise with Francis. They have no right to do so, we insist that the footpath as designated "to the water" by the Inspector after the Inquiry be enforced by PCC, nothing more nothing less.
We cannot tolerate a backdoor deal which loses our right to access the top pond. A land grab cannot be tolerated .
We have been TOLD not to use the footpath until a compromise can be agreed.
