The Parish Council has received queries about the new fencing that is being installed along footpath 18Bo that runs from Bolney School, north across the field to Ryecroft Road.
The site manager at Riverdale has confirmed that they are moving the security fencing that was erected prior to starting work on the site. Having built the foundations of the houses there it has become apparent that the fence has not been erected to allow room to form the final contours of the ground in that location, or erect scaffolding. The boundary line is in the centre line of the hedge shown in the photo below rather than the security fence line, and the minimum Public Right of Way width on the field edge is 1.5 m. They are setting up the new security fence line at 2.0 m from the face of the hedge to still maintain the Public Right of Way. The fence currently being erected is still only a temporary security fence, but will be closer to the finished line of the permanent fence that will be erected once the houses in that area have been completed.
