Holmfirth Footpath 150 – Kirklees Remove Pallet.

That might just be the most underwhelming headline you ever read.

I can report that following reports from the public the offending pallet on Holmfirth Footpath 150 has indeed been removed by Kirklees.

Whilst other issues are still outstanding thanks are due to the Council for acting so swiftly and sending out the right message.

There’s no doubt this kind of thing can be a thankless task. Having served notice on the landowner after a long period of informal discussions failed it must be galling to see the path deliberately blocked again so soon.

Of course the actions of one person in blocking the path have cost the tax payer and wasted council staff time. In a world of diminishing public resources these costs should be fully recovered from those acting illegally. It might make them stop and think next time.
