Knowle Hill Park Footpath Closure - August 2018 for 2 weeks

The public footpath that borders the Knowle Hill Park fields and runs parallel with Lodge Close (up to the stile by Polyapes Scout camp) is being resurfaced and will be closed for approximately 2 weeks. This should begin in the first week of August 2018.

The work is being jointly funded by Elmbridge Council and Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust and was one of three successful applications that Cobham Heritage made for footpath improvement works using CIL (Communities Infrastructure Levy) funding.

The work will clear the overgrown bushes and resurface the path with a material in keeping with the rural nature of the path resulting in this popular route being usable and easily walkable throughout the year.

Cobham Heritage have worked closely with both Elmbridge and Surrey County Councils on this and it is Surrey CC who have commissioned the work as they are responsible for the ongoing maintenance.

As can be seen from the photograph taken in 2017, this footpath is almost impassable during the winter.

We understand some local residents have been concerned about the surfacing work and Surrey County Council have been kind enough to allow us to publish their recent letter sent to the residents who live nearby. This gives more details of the work to be done and the materials to be used. We hope this will address the concerns raised.
