A Right of Way path on the boundary of Croxley Green is to be restored for use after having been closed off more than a year ago.
The path in the Chess Valley area was a popular walking route for ramblers, dog walkers and those out for a stroll.
But just over 12 months ago, the farmer who owns the field that the path goes through legally put up barriers and fencing to block the path off so that he could graze sheep. Residents were left upset at the restriction.
Following talks however, the path will reopen to the general public once more. There are also plans for it to become a recognised Right of Way.
Councillor Chris Lloyd, who has been involved in these talks since the issue was first raised by constituents, said: “I know residents would have liked this resolved quicker, but due processes had to be followed.
“However, we are nearly at the end of the process and assuming no further problems, this should become a recognised Right of Way.”
