Message from the Public Rights of Way Department, GCC

A member of the public has the right to walk a public footpath at any time of the day or night and a dog is considered to be a 'natural accompaniment'. However the dog must stay on the line of the footpath and under close control with its owner – there is no right for dogs to run around off the line of the path – this can result in livestock being spooked and/or dogs worrying the livestock.

Notices can be erected on a right of way and should pass information on to the public. It is an offence to take these down. It is also an offence to put up a notice which intimidates walkers. I have seen the notice the farmer has put up and I am satisfied it covers everything for them and walkers. Dog poo can cause cattle and sheep to abort their young – if not cleaned up it can get into the hay which is fed to livestock and ultimately into the food chain. It is an offence not to clear up dog poo. It is irresponsible to throw bags full of dog poo into the hedge – this should be disposed of in a dog bin or normal bin. » Less

Natasha Panchbhaya, Adult Education Delivery Manager at Adult Education in Gloucestershire, said, "Adult Education in Gloucestershire are delighted to be working in collaboration with Gloucestershire County Council's Fastershire Project for Get Online Week 2019.

"We're keen to support those individuals who maybe struggling with their digital skills. The courses are popular amongst those that are retired and they have found the skills useful to allow them to communicate with family and friends online and also support personal ventures."

Fastershire is a partnership between Gloucestershire County Council and Herefordshire Council to bring faster broadband to the two counties.

Cllr Patrick Molyneux, Cabinet Member for Economy, Education and Skills, said, "Gloucestershire County Council is committed to ensuring at that our homes and businesses can access faster broadband, but it is so important that no one feels left behind.

"So much of modern life requires us to access the internet and through programmes like this, we're working to ensure that everyone can benefit from faster broadband."

Fastershire offers similar workshops each month as part of the project's digital inclusion programme, FasterCommunities.
