As you may know, the path into Hagg Wood from Intake Lane, which has been used by Dunnington residents for many years, is now being blocked and the access gate chained up to prevent local residents from using it. This is causing considerable inconvenience and loss of amenity to many users of our local wood. Are you unhappy about this?
If so, please follow the link to our Contact Us page to provide us with some information about your use of the path. This will help us organise a strong local petition and up to date Evidence of Use forms to submit to City of York Council to strengthen our existing claims to recognise this path as a Public Right of Way, which you can freely use to enjoy the wood once again.
The Friends of Hagg Wood submitted Public Rights of Way claims on this path and another nearby path into Hagg Wood more than 20 years ago, but for reasons which we do not defend City of York Council have only recently announced their intention to process these claims in the coming months. We can increase the chances of the path from Intake Lane into Hagg Wood being fully recognised as a Public Right of Way if you support us by sending in your name, and any other details you wish, via the above link. Please also encourage your friends and anyone else you know who has used this path to enjoy the wood to do the same. If they do not have email access, an alternative postal address to send it to is FHW 5 Church Lane, Dunnington, YO19 5PT.
Positive local action can then ensure that we do not permanently lose this valuable local amenity. Many thanks for your help.
