Relief as controversial Fishmore View footbridge removed from housing plans

Tesni, the company that is planning to build 215 houses between Bromfield Road and the A49 has successfully applied to remove the controversial foot and cycle bridge across the Corve to Fishmore View. This huge footbridge would have been more than 250 metres long (275 yards) and soar 7 metres (23 feet) above the bed of the Corve. This action follows my request on behalf of Fishmore View residents. They were concerned that their quiet cul de sac would become clogged with parked cars owned by dog walkers using the proposed riverside park the other side of the Corve. Now they can relax. The footbridge has been removed from the plans and will not be built.
