Schools want to block path

A PUBLIC footpath in Thornbury could be blocked to protect two schools from anti-social behaviour and vandalism.

South Gloucestershire Council has received an application to stop up the public right of way which skirts the grounds of the Sheiling School and the Castle School.

Thornbury’s secondary school and the neighbouring independent day and residential school for children with special educational needs have made the application jointly, as the path, which runs between Park Road and the back of Victoria Close, gives access to both sites.

Both schools have been hit by crime and antisocial behaviour, including several arson and vandal attacks on the Castle School last year.
