Petition to request Durham County Council to build a public footpath between Haswell Plough and Shotton

We the undersigned petition the Council to To build a footpath between Haswell Plough and Shotton for the safety of residents and visitors.

People living in Haswell Plough currently have no means of accessing the facilities in Shotton such as the local primary schools, pubic house and shops without using a car of public transport. There is no public footpath so residents have to walk on the main road. This includes children, adults with prams/pushchairs (to get to and from school)and people with physical disabilities travelling in electric vehicles. This is extremely unsafe and dangerous.
In addition, as it is dangerous to walk on the road many residents are forced to use their own vehicles, which is not in line with the Council’s Sustainable Communities Strategy.

This ePetition runs from 06/12/2021 to 06/02/2022.
