Refurbished Footpath

The Parish Council is pleased that in conjunction with Gloucestershire County Council – Public Rights of Way and County Cllr Mrs Gill Moseley the footpath that runs between Gloucester Road and Forge Lane has recently been resurfaced.  Its prior condition with poor surfacing and overgrowing vegetation made it difficult to use but now its new surfacing and wider access make it much more user friendly.  The Parish Council contributed £700 towards the overall cost (including a grant of £325 which the Parish Council bid for, from Cheltenham Motor Club, following a Rally having taken place in the village last year).  Public Rights of Way contributed £1000, and Cllr Mrs Gill Moseley who visited the site and met with Parish Council representatives also contributed £2000 from her allocation of highway funding towards the project too.   Public Right of Way have many hundreds of public paths in Gloucestershire to maintain and have to prioritise which ones they are able to support.  Upleadon is fortunate to have received funding from them to refurbish this important path in the centre of the village which of course avoids having to walk around the Cross where traffic can be busy.
