MP: Access to be restored ‘within a week’ to field favoured by dog walkers in Calverton

by Gedling Eye Reporter

Access to a field in Calverton will soon be restored after a local MP reached an agreement with a farmer to allow the land to again be used by villagers.

MP Mark Spencer went along to see the field near Hollinwood Lane during a visit to the area and was joined by Cllr Jane Walker from Gedling Borough Council.

The field was recently fenced off to prevent people from the local area using it as access to Millennium Wood.

Mr Spencer has now agreed to allow the path in the field to be used again.

He said: “I’ve been out with Cllr Walker this morning to see the field that’s been fenced off up by Hollinwood Lane in Calverton.

“We met with the farmer and representatives of Langridge Homes, and I’m very pleased to say that, after a productive meeting, a path, complete with a ‘kissing style gate’ has been agreed upon. This path will lead from Hollinwood Lane to the Millennium Wood. Not only that, but I’ve been assured that this will be sorted within a week.

He added: “I’m keeping my eye on this, and will keep pushing to make sure this does happen, but this is fantastic news for local residents and dog Walkers in Calverton.”

It’s a terrible representation of the area where a farmer with private land cannot even stop dogs from coming onto his field.
Although, yes it is a nice walk, This farmer should not have been penalised. Especially seeing as locals have been damaging his property just to gain access… I feel for the bloke.
