Decision details

Definitive Map Modification Order recording a public footpath in woodland adjacent to Windmill Lane, Heslington

Decision Maker: Decision Session - Executive Member for Transport, Executive Member for Transport

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of report: Following the Executive Member decision of 14 February 2019 to make the order, no objections to the order were received so the report is seeking authorisation to confirm the order.

The Executive Member will be asked to either authorise the confirmation of the DMMO to will record the footpath on the definitive map and statement, or not.


Resolved:  That the Definitive Map Modification Order to record the route through Mill Plantation as a public footpath, as shown on the map at Annex 2 to the report, be confirmed.


Reason:     No objections were received during the statutory notice period, and the additional evidence of use detailed at the Decision Session on 7 February 2019 means that, on the balance of probabilities, the route is a public right of way.
