Give control of all footpath matters to council

Comment 3rd July 2010

Currently, if there is as little as one objector to a footpath issue, the matter must be decided at the national level by the "Planning Inspectorate".  It should be up to the various local and regional councils to make the decision, unless there are many firm objectors (say 20).  This would prevent objectors who have a personal issue from obstructing a change.

Why does this matter?

This allows local councils to determine the location of where its citizens can best be served, and stop wasting valuable national resources (time and money) on smaller issues.
