Langness Peninsula - public rights of way confirmed

Monday, 18 June 2012

On Thursday 26 April, Deemster Doyle handed down his judgement that the Department of Infrastructure should amend the Definitive Maps and Statement to include various footpaths on Langness.

Following this decision, the 6 week period within which an appeal was allowed elapsed on 7 June 2012, and no appeal has been lodged. The Department of Infrastructure will formally amend the Definitive Maps and Statement to show the paths, and will also take steps to put up signs to show where the public rights of way are. The Department has checked and confirmed that the paths are all open with the exception of a short section which supports the path from the sea side of the Langness Lighthouse out to the fog horn, which will open once the Department has completed repairs to the footbridge.
