  • Diversion of FP 345012 extinguishment FP 345 013 creation of FP 345056  Greenrow Matterdale. LDLAF advises that: much of the 'current furniture' that has been put in place to facilitate the 'informal diversion' appears not to be to the LDNPA standard and that 'standard' furniture should be installed at all the fence and wall crossing points. Additionally, the LAF advises that: in association with the welcome creation of a more direct path in the direction of Little Mell Fell (proposed FP 345056) attention should be paid to the water than seems to emerge form the ground part way up the proposed 'created' path (as it from a spring) which, if not drained, may be expected to result in the steep path always being soft and wet. Also, that access should be provided into the Little Mell Fell Open Access land on the opposite side of the U3135 road from where the proposed new path 345056 is proposed to exit onto the U3135:or that at least a sign should be installed at that location directing users to the nearest access point into Open Access land. Date 4 January 2013.
