Owners of an activity centre have made an application to Sheffield City Council to divert a public footpath that runs directly through the site.

The footpath currently runs directly through the Underbank Outdoor Centre, in Stocksbridge, close to a climbing tower and zipwire, and the owners want to divert the route in the interests of public safety and to improve security on the site.

The route currently begins at Oaks Lane and heads north through the activity centre, before turning south and terminating at Smithy Moor Lane.

Instead it is proposed that a new route will run directly between the start and end points of the footpath.

The application is recommended for approval, when it is discussed by Sheffield City Council’s next planning and highways committee, set to take place on Tuesday, May 22.
