Highways under threat - Taking Action   (1.9.16)
The Deregulation Act is likely to come into force in England in the next few months. When you apply for an additional path to the definitive map, the surveying authority is required to determine your application within 12months. If it has not done so, you can apply to the Secretary of State for Environment for a direction to the council to determine the application.
Once the Deregulation Act takes effect in England, your application must be made to the magistrates court rather than the Secretary of State. This is a drawback since current court fees are £205 to commence proceedings and £515 for a contested hearing.

Wetheral Brownies Scottish Adventure   (June 2016)
28 Members of Wetheral Brownies enjoyed a fantastic weekend of beautiful Scottish Borders weather, fun and ‘mountain top’ moments on their Scotland The Brave! adventure last weekend.
Based at Netherurd House, owned by Girlguiding Scotland, the group took full advantage of the exciting on-site activities of canoeing, zorbing, high ropes and zip wires as well as spending an action packed day in Edinburgh. Here, they visited the Camera Obscura and World of Illusions attraction before entertaining dozens of foreign tourists by singing as they marched along The Royal Mile to their ascent of Arthurs Seat, the dormant volcano which guards the city.
The Brownies picnicked high up above the city on Arthurs Seat and sang a hearty’ Happy Birthday’ to Her Majesty The Queen , much to the delight of other visitors.
Back at Netherurd there was plenty of time for Scottish Piper, Robert Scott, to visit and teach the group some Scottish dance and music heritage. This was complemented with traditional crafts and camp fires, where the Brownies met with other members of Girlguiding UK staying at Netherurd.
The Wetheral Brownies Scotland The Brave! Adventure was made possible by generous grants from The Hadfield Trust, Cumbria Community Foundation, Cumbria County Council, The Thomas Graham Educational Trust and Cumbria North Girlguiding. Representatives of these grant funders were present to wave the Brownies off on their expedition as they were piped away early in the morning by Craig Irving, setting the atmosphere with ‘Scotland the Brave’!
