The hysteria surrounding walking paths as a form of exercise during the current public lockdown has reached Holmfirth footpaths. For clarity have a read of this link on the new law bringing in the restrictions. You can walk public paths. There are no restrictions on driving a mile or two to do so. The police and all front line services have a difficult balancing act but it is reported here that they are now taking a more pragmatic approach to this issue and the drones have been grounded for now. West Yorkshire Police are reportedly not issuing warning letters for parked cars in walking areas locally. This LBQC from St. John’s Chambers is also worth reading. Time to put the pitchforks away and be sensible.
Any signs such as the one above or obstructions should be reported to Kirklees in the usual manner here email@example.com
