FOR INFO: Notice of Landowner Deposit Statement

The following statements have been spotted across various locations in the village including hermitage Lane and the Recreation ground.

Higham Parish Council would like to clarify what the document means.

This is to do with landowner protection – in this case St John’s College. Depositing a statement and map means they are letting KCC know about existing public rights of way across their land and declaring they have no intention to dedicate any further routes to the public.
