Temporary Closure of Footpath 17 (Sheps Hollow), Swanage
DORSET COUNCIL intend, not less than seven days from the date of this notice, to make an Order under Section 14  of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended. All pedestrians will be prohibited from proceeding along part of Footpath 17 from grid reference SZ 033 804 to grid reference SZ 034 804, a distance of approximately 30 metres. The Order is needed to comply with Health and Safety Regulations, which require the provision of safe working areas and to minimise the likelihood of danger to Highway Users. It will come into operation on Saturday 09 May 2020 for a period of 6 months, until Sunday 08 November 2020. But may be extended by the Secretary of State if required.
This closure is needed due to the landslip making the steps and boardwalk unstable.
