11/07/2024 - Dedication of public footpath rights, East Anton, Andover ref: 3871    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Director of Universal Services

Decision published: 22/07/2024

Effective from: 11/07/2024

Decision:

It is proposed that Hampshire County Council enter into an agreement with Taylor Wimpey Ltd for the common law dedication of public footpath rights, as shown on the location map at Appendix 1.
In 2019, Test Valley Borough Council (TVBC) made an order under Section 257 of the Town and Country planning Act 1990 to divert Andover Footpath 10b (see Appendix 2). The order was made in connection with a large-scale housing development immediately adjacent to a railway line running immediately adjacent to the site. The path crosses the railway line via an ‘at grade’ pedestrian crossing which Network Rail has recently identified as one of the highest risk crossings on the Wessex Line. Its position, which was accepted by TVBC, was that to
maintain the crossing was not viable in the context of hundreds of new dwellings
being constructed immediately adjacent to the railway line.
The Order was to have diverted Andover 10b alongside the railway line, connecting a recently dedicated route - Andover Footpath 506 (Point A on the plan) to an existing cycleway known as the Icknield Way link (near Point B). The order was confirmed without objection in 2019, but construction of the diversion route was not undertaken immediately. It now transpires that delivery of the
diversion route is no longer feasible, due to the lack of available space and environmental and engineering restrictions due to the proximity of newly built houses. Following discussions between the County Council, TVBC and the developer, it has been accepted that the 2019 Order cannot be certified as the path is not physically deliverable, and that the removal of the level crossing will
need to be achieved through different means.
To this end, the developer has now offered to dedicate an alternative path to connect the northern terminus of Andover 10b to the Icknield Way (see A-E on
Appendix 1). The path is more circuitous than what was originally envisaged in the 2019 Order, but nevertheless provides a viable pedestrian link through from Andover Footpath 506 to the Icknield Way. It is proposed that, following the dedication, the developer will submit a separate application to the County Council under the provisions of Section 118A of the Highways Act 1980 to
extinguish Andover 10b, on the grounds that it is expedient in the interests of public safety that the path is extinguished. The developer has agreed to cover
the County Council’s legal costs incurred in the progression of this agreement.
The new path, which has a minimum width of 2 metres, runs over a varied route comprising loose bound material, block paving and grass. Part of the route runs over the roadways of the new development, parts of which are due to be adopted by Hampshire Highways. The Area Countryside Access Manager has indicated that they are happy with the proposed alignment. Because of the variable nature of the surface, and the fact that part of the route will be metalled, it has been agreed that the dedication will not be under the Highways Act 1980, and so will not confer maintenance responsibility on the highway authority. That part of the route that runs over a metalled carriageway may be removed from the definitive
map as and when that part is formally adopted by Hampshire Highways.
Because the dedication is not being progressed under statutory provisions, there is no requirement to consult before entering into the agreement. However, ongoing discussions following the 2019 Order mean that the Ramblers and TVBC are aware of the proposal.
