I read with interest your article on Byrd's Farm Lane as I have two small girls and we use the lane almost every day .
In addition to the actual road, the walking path connecting Goddard Way to Byrd's Farm Lane is a major problem. There are absolutely no lights on the path, and with the overhanging trees, it is extremely dark after sunset.
I worry about the safety of my girls, and other people's children, as they get older and want to walk to town, friends' houses, etc, and the shortest route will be down an unlit, heavily wooded path. I don't want to wait until someone gets attacked to solve this potential problem.
The dog mess, rubbish, and stinging nettles that encroach on the walking path are all problems, but the biggest improvement they could make would be to install footlights that were low enough to avoid spilling unwanted light over the fences of the adjourning houses, and bright enough to make the path safe after dark.
