An application has been received to divert the public footpaths that run along and off the access road through the Liberty Steels site at Stocksbridge (shown as a solid black line on the attached plan).  The applicant wishes to divert the path on the grounds of security and privacy and along with the City Council has provided land that has enabled the creation of a footpath, linking STO\1B, STO\2A and STO\3 (shown as a dotted line on the attached consultation plan). 

Responses required by 20th February.

As the proposed diversion offers an improved ROW for walkers, the three Sheffield Area Footpath Officers support the proposal shown below. If you wish to respond as an individual please contact:
