Members of the Penarth Marina and Haven Residents Association have been told that there is now a possibility that the informal access-path from the Marina to Dock Beach could be accepted as public right-of-way.
The new chair of the association Gwynne Griffiths, along with the past chairman Martin Whitehill and Cllr Gwyn Roberts (Labour St Augustines) have held a meeting with the Vale Council’s Public Rights-of-Way Officer, Gwyn Teague to press the issue of formalising the pathway.
The Vale Council has said it will require evidence statements from local people confirming that they have used the route during the past 20 years. The Residents’ Association will compile the documentation to make the case to the council .
There is a long tradition of the route being used by local people – pre-dating the building of the Barrage but the ssociation needs is hard documentary evidence in the form of statements about the use of this pathway to advance the case for creating a Right of Way The association’s newly elected chair Gwynne Griffiths is to distribute “statement forms”.
