At the public inquiry in September we proved to the Inspector that out of the 38 user forms produced by the council to prove the the Path had been used over a twenty year period 1936-1956 only five of the users could have used the path during that period due to their date of birth (some were not even born then. The five that could have used the path during that period all five were invalid because they were members of the family who owned the property at that time. It has been said/implied that it requires a minimum of ten users to satisfy Section 31 Highways Act.
