Aldershot and District Military Lands Byelaws

Posted by jpennycook on 8 December 2017 in English (English)

I've submitted a FOIA request to find out where the byelaws cover, as I've seen areas where (according to new-ish signs) the byelaws still apply even after the land has changed use.

Note to self: learn to spell

I need to train my fingers to spell "permissive". Alternatively, I'll try copying and pasting it...

Reverting unexplained demotions to footways

Posted by jpennycook on 26 October 2017 in English (English)

Today I shall be reverting an expained series of changes where a number of tracks and bridleways in the areas of Lighwater, Frimley, and Deepcut, plus cycleways around Woking Park, were all demoted to highway=footway. These were ones that I had previously surveyed, so I'm satisfied the change was a mistake. Unfortunately, the editor hasn't been back to OpenStreetMap since I contacted them - perhaps I frightened them off, so I'll fix them myself.

My methodology will be simple - if that person has a footway in their edit history with version greater than 1, I will check the history to see if it is one that I previously edited or that I am interested in, and then revert the highway type to the one it was previously set to.

NCN422 signs have appeared

Posted by jpennycook on 3 September 2017 in English (English)

NCN422 signs have appeared along Bath Road in Reading near Aldi and Lidl. Hopefully the section between Berkeley Avenue and Wokingham Borough, then the section between Wokingham centre and John Nike Way will follow soon.

Arborfield Garrison, Arborfield Green, Finchampstead

Posted by jpennycook on 3 September 2017 in English (English)

As well as the previous entry, I'm also interested in the new development at Arborfield Green, together with the changes in Finchampstead - these should provide a link to Wokingham, and thus to the NCN422.
