We do all need to be clear on the lines of responsibility, duty and powers as many are not and that is part of the problem.
The County Council has the Duty to ensure that they are kept clear (not to actually do the work)
The Parish Council has the power to ask for the work to be done and to get it done, if needed.
Users have responsibility to keep to footpaths and respect the environment but also the right to clear and go around obstructions, if needed.
