A popular Totnes footpath is set for improvement early next year, funded by South Hams District Council.
Works in Bridgetown are expected to begin in January 2022 to improve access along the Chicken Run for pedestrians. The work to be carried out by iCivils Ltd will include replacing steps with ramps or providing surfaced ramps alongside the existing steps. The funds for the work have come from the nearby Great Court Farm development.
Subject to a successful license application, the works will start on Tuesday, 4 January, 2022 and will take around four weeks to complete. During this time, parts of the path will need to close for safety reasons but a diversion route will be clearly signposted.
Before the footpath work can begin, our Grounds Maintenance team will be carrying out some essential tree works from Tuesday, 30 November.
South Hams District Council’s Executive Member for Health and Wellbeing Jonathan Hawkins, said: “The proposed footpath improvement works should provide real benefits for the local community, making the route easier to access for all. By making the Chicken Run pathway more accessible, it does mean we must remove the sycamore tree to allow the project to go ahead as it currently obstructs the way.
Further details of the planned improvements can be found on the Council’s website at www.southhams.gov.uk/chicken-run
