Crewkerne Town Council will receive a presentation from Network Rail, on a footpath diversion proposal, at the next online meeting of the Planning and Highways Committee on Monday March 8th at 6.45 pm. The diversion of the footpath, leading to the level crossing over the railway line in Cathole Bridge Road, was set out as one of the statutory conditions by the planning inspectorate, which needs to take place before the building of up to 150 dwellings on land south of Kithill can proceed.
