Ashby de la Zouch Town Council has launched a survey to gain residents' opinions on the proposed footpath from the new Money Hill development to North Street.

The path is expected to provide pedestrian access from the 150-space car park off Nottingham Road.

But the route currently passes through Wainwright's Yard which is used by vehicles on a regular basis.

The Town Council is working with other local authorities to try and find a solution - and is gauging the views of the public.

The council says: "Footpath O89 runs from North Street through to Resolution Road (near Tesco).

"As part of the new Money Hill Development, the footpath is due to be upgraded to also allow cycles, pushchairs, wheelchairs etc, though there is some uncertainty as to whether this will be possible through the part of the existing path that runs through Wainwright's Yard.

"The footpath will provide users of the new 150-space public car park in the southwest corner of the new development pedestrian access to North Street and Ivanhoe School.

"The Town Council is conducting a short survey to gather the opinions of current users of the footpath as well as prospective users of the upgraded route, with a view to sharing the results of the survey with the Planning Authority (North West Leicestershire District Council) and the Highway Authority (Leicestershire County Council)."
