Maintenance of public footpaths


Maintenance of public footpaths in Aldingbourne Parish is carried out by West Sussex County Council, in particular, the cutting back of overgrowth is performed every summer, usually once but in some cases twice.

In addition, the Parish Council inspects the paths from time to time and performs interim cutting back to keep paths passable. Use of weedkillers is discouraged as this is potentially dangerous. It is harmful to wildlife as it destroys hedgerow habitats.
