I was recently asked about the footpath running from the Centurion Fields estate on to Otley Road. I took this up with Planning Enforcement and they have responded as follows:

“The footpath from the Centurion Fields site to Otley Road although not on the plans was welcomed because it is the preferred desire line for pedestrians, however the developer has stated that this footpath will have a gradient of 1:10 or steeper which is not acceptable to adopt. Therefore the developer has decided to keep this route and this would remain privately owned.
This footpath is to be completed as part of one of the last jobs left on site which the developer hopes to complete by the end of the month.”
