Places for People, the contractors for the new Andover Leisure Centre have applied to have the public right of way, from West Street through to the Leisure Centre entrance extinguished.
Although the application suggests the route is not a registered public right of way, that it has been used as such for over twenty years, it is considered that it has the potential for a dedication as a Right of Way if an application was submitted.
The planning documents state that the reason for the application, is to prevent conflict between pedestrians and construction traffic during the erection of the new centre.
The application states that there is a suitable alternative access point to the west of the existing leisure centre.
Andover Town Council were asked for their feedback on the plans and had no objection.
