Green Charter crap #5

We will review, maintain, and upgrade as appropriate the borough's own statutory network of footpaths; and will encourage recreational walking within and around the borough by promotion and information on local walks. (LBWF 'Green Charter')

Oh really? I don’t know of a single public footpath in the Borough which is signposted. Nor am I aware of any Council publication which marks public footpaths in the Borough. This public footpath is unmarked, by the Waterworks centre and nature reserve beside Lea Bridge Road. And it has been neglected and obstructed on a regular basis for as long as I can remember. Here’s the latest obstruction.
