New footpath along Blackboy Lane

The Parish Council is very pleased to be able to announce that work is starting soon to provide a new footpath on the southern section of Blackboy Lane linking the footpath along the playing field to the A259. This should make accessing the Fishbourne Centre from the south much safer and easier.

The need for a footpath in this location was brought up by residents and became a project in the Neighbourhood Plan. The Parish Council then put together a bid to go to West Sussex County Council’s Community Highway Scheme, where it was successful and won the funding ahead of many other projects about the county.

The Parish Council is delighted that this new access will be provided in the next few weeks and would also like to thank the residents of Blackboy Lane who will be affected by the work for their patience and assistance. Thanks also go to Edwin Scarterfield who has generously given the verge which he owns to be made into a footpath for the good of the village.

Here is some more information about the scheme, including diversion route in place when Blackboy Lane will be closed.
