Resident Hands Over Petition Calling For Quick Action To Fix Shooters Hill

A petition signed by over a hundred Shaftesbury residents has been presented to the Town Council, calling for swift action on reopening both sides of Shooters Lane, the steep footpath that links the High Street and Layton Lane.

Resident Michelle Alford told Alfred why this walkway was particularly important. Town clerk Claire Commons said now Dorset Rangers, rather than the Highways Team, are dealing with the matter she expects a fast resolution.

On Tuesday we reported Dorset Council’s statement that the matter was progressing after almost two years of partial closure of the path.
