The houses for sale in Bridgnorth leads to a new pathway
10 August 2011
The Bridgnorth community is delighted thanks to the response of leading local housebuilder, Charles Church, which listened to their pleas to make an impassable public footpath fit for use again.
Linking Wenlock Road with Trevithick Close, the public footpath was in a poor state and as used by residents to access Bridgnorth, was causing concern and frustration as people were finding it impossible to use, especially those in wheelchairs or with children in pushchairs.
Tim Brickley, technical director for Charles Church, comments: “As we are building houses for sale in Bridgnorth at our development Wenlock Rise on Hazledine Way, we were only too pleased to help by leveling and re-gravelling the area to improve access for residents and the wider community.
“We are committed to supporting and helping the communities in which we build and Bridgnorth is no exception. The footpath is being used far more than it was which shows what an important and vital link it is.”
Les Winwood, Shropshire Councillor for Bridgnorth West and Tasley, said: "I'm delighted that Charles Church, as a goodwill gesture, has provided this footpath for the residents of Wenlock Rise and the wider community. Tasley Parish Council and local resident Sue Ealey were very keen to get this path provided to benefit all residents in the area, especially families. I would like to thank Charles Church, Steve Charteris of Shropshire Council, and all who helped to make this possible."
Councillor John Hurst-Knight, Shropshire Councillor for Bridgnorth West and Tasley, adds: "This development has enhanced the area from the bypass to Wenlock Road and importantly, has also provided housing opportunities for the people of Bridgnorth and Tasley."
