Outside of the Environment Service Newquay Town Council currently contracts out Footpath Maintenance for a select number of paths in Newquay. This is carried out under the Local Maintenance Partnership (LMP) Scheme with Cornwall Council. Please find below a link to the schedule of Footpaths cut by Newquay Town Council. Any queries regarding the maintenance of the footpath itself should still be directed to Cornwall Council.
The specification of works we do to the Footpaths is;
Strimming / brushcutting / mowing vegetation from those paths specified in the schedule above. Generally trimmings may be left on site but where large amounts of vegetation result from works, chipping and/or removal from site may be necessary where on-site disposal is not possible. Footpath maintenance does not include weeding of those footpaths.
Paths should be maintained consistent with their level of use and legal status (e.g. footpath or bridleway). As a guide:
- footpaths should be cleared to a width of 1.5m (where possible) and to a height of 2m;
- bridleways should be cleared to a width of 2.5m and a height of 3.5m. where the path corridor allows.
