Reasons for Decisions
(a) The proposed diversion meets the legal criteria set out in the Highways Act 1980.
(b) The inclusion of these provisions in a public path order means that there is no need for a separate legal event order to modify the definitive map and statement as a result of the diversion.
(c) Accordingly, the absence of objections may be taken as acceptance that the proposed new route is expedient and therefore Dorset Council can itself confirm the Order and need not submit the Order to the Planning Inspectorate.
