The good news is that the legal challenge brought by "Brockweir Cycleway Concern" against the Forest of Dean CC has been thrown out of the high court. ??The bad news is that because of the time it is taking Monmouthshire CC to decide about their section of the path, Sustrans have been forced to re-allocate the lottery funding to other projects in the country.
There are very strict time limits attached to this funding and Sustrans felt that given the time it was taking to get planning permission there was a very real possibility that the funds would not be spent before December 2012. ??
Sustrans remain fully committed to the project, however, and will continue to push for full planning permission. They will then look for funding elsewhere.
Wye Valley Communities for Safe Cycling aim to help with fund-raising in any way we can. ??Thanks for your continued support. ??
