I note on the plan that there's to be a permissive footpath, which is NOT a public right of way, running north east from the end of the runway to Deal Road and then onto Northbourne.
I'm puzzled as to why they should feel the need for this permissive path.
There's a well-established public footpath (EE420), forming part of the White Cliffs Country Trail, running from Northbourne to Little Mongeham across the end of the airstrip?
Are they suggesting that they don't want people to use EE420 because it's too dangerous for them with planes landing and taking off? If that's the case, then the sensible approached would be for them to have the footpath redirected.
So, why the need for the permissive path?
