ONCE again Cumbria County Council have totally ignored the views of local inhabitants. Yet another shared use footpath is to be made (Gazette, September 12, 'Shared path is "insanity" ').

It would perhaps have been a good idea if they had monitored the use of the ones past Kendal Leisure Centre and up the A65. They are seldom used by cyclists, and such little use does not warrant the expense of creating these joint pathways. But of course CCC know best!
