As you may be aware, access to the footway from Reyntiens View to the cemetery has been closed by the management company at Mildmay Court. Several residents have expressed their concerns to the parish council at the loss of this access.

OPC’s Traffic and Transport Committee has agreed to apply to Hampshire County Council for a Definitive Map Modification Order (DMMO) to try and re-establish the public’s access.

This is lengthy and technical process, part of which is to obtain confirmation of previous local use of any such access, including the timeframe of such use. To this end, OPC is asking any local resident who wishes to see this happen, to complete the User Evidence Form below and return this to OPC either by hand to the parish office or via email to

Each person completing the form needs to mark the route with a red line that they have used on a copy of the map below and attach it to their form and sign and date it. OPC will include any relevant copies of maps and documentary evidence.  It is important that the forms are completed according to the regulations and submitted in the correct order.

OPC would ask anyone wishing to complete the form to do so by 15 March 2019.
