The Covid crisis has understandably meant more people walking around our Nunthorpe public rights of ways, footpaths and bridleways, including at Grey Towers.
A public right of way is over land owned by somebody. In the case of the Grey Towers building and adjacent land, the land is owned by the Grey Towers residents.
The public may use rights of way which are highlighted along the route with signage as in the accompanying illustration.
We must all stick to the rules to ensure safety and keep to the two metre-wide path. This includes dogs, which must be kept on leads, as paths go on to farmers fields where there is livestock.
After recent meetings, we wrote to Middlesbrough Council and received an indication of support to work together with residents to seek greater understanding in the future and to see what progress can be made.
We are also working in partnership with OurGreenways in producing a clear map showing paths and rights of ways along with further guidance.
The Parish Council, Ward Councillors and the Grey Towers owners are engaged in discussions and working hard to tackle issues and will keep everyone updated to minimise any misunderstanding.
