NEWS: Rumours of land sale and restriction to walkers
The erection of fencing and signage at the Cothill Road entrance is the latest development in the story of Cothill Pitt under Buckinghamshire-based owner, Mr Martin Rowland. According to his agent, Mr Rowland is considering selling the land, possibly dividing it into plots.
In light of this, Save Cothill Pitt steering group has met to urgently consider options. Details of the sale are not yet know.
The Chair of SCP has also sent a letter to the owner, expressing concern over the restriction of access. While not contending the land is private property, it has been brought to their attention that obstructing a public highway contravenes the Highways Act. There is ample evidence that public rights of way have been etablished over Cothill Pitt.
