A Byway Open to All Traffic Along Lewesdon?

Dorset Council has received an application to modify the definitive map and statement of rights of way. The effect of the application, if successful, will be to alter Dorset Council’s record of public rights of way by adding a Byway Open to All Traffic along Lewesdon.  A register of Definitive Map Modification Order (DMMO) applications is kept to help increase knowledge among landowners, users of rights of way and the general public about applications which could result or have resulted in changes to the definitive map and/or statement.

Hill Lane from the eastern end of Bridleway W26/16, eastwards to the public road at Stoke Knapp in Stoke Abbott Parish.

The applicant has based the claim entirely on historic documentary evidence but in due course user evidence will also be considered. Although the investigation into this application has not yet begun, parishioners can submit any relevant evidence that can be included in the Council’s report, after investigation by officers.
