A BID to re-open a popular riverside walking route on Ottery's outskirts has been refused.
As the Herald went to press yesterday the Planning Inspectorate announced proposals to modify footpath 46, which allowed walkers to travel along the eastern side of the River Otter between Wiggaton and Tipton, have been turned down.
A public enquiry on the matter was held in March.
Wiggaton couple Tim and Denise Overton battled plans that incorporated their land at Little Burcombe Farm, and feared the diversion could devalue their home by �180,000.
