Illegal closure of BR18 in Little Berkhampsted

We the undersigned petition the County Council to Re-open BR18 due to its illegal closure by village residents

Bridleway BR18 has been shown in the position marked on the definitive map as far back as 1949. Prior to this, it is shown in the exact same position on ordnance survey mapping as far back as 1896. It very much still exists when you trace this route, but has been blocked off at its starting point, at Little Berkhamsted Lane in between Rose Cottage (14-16 Little Berkhamsted Lane) and 12 Little Berkhamsted Lane, by a keypad gate and absorbed into the adjacent residential plots. At the other end, the path is blocked off with a metal gate and padlock at the junction with BR19, so that none of the route is actively available for public use, as a bridleway or a footpath.
There is a need to re-open and restore BR18 in its true historical position and enable the local villagers, as well as other members of the public, to use and enjoy it, for generations to come.
We wish to submit this petition in the next full County Council meeting.
