Somerset County Council is the body responsible for clearing and keeping clear Public Rights of Way. Public Rights of Way can be footpaths, bridlepaths, restricted byways and byways open to all traffic. Whilst the parish council can report these matters on your behalf, those who report issues generally have much more accurate information on what the issue is and where the issue is so we would encourage you to report any problems, including with footpaths that lead down to the beach, on Somerset County Council's website yourself.
The link for reporting is: https://www.somerset.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/report-a-problem-with-a-public-right-of-way/
Thanks to the work of Cllr Tony Legg, the benches in the village have been repaired and refurbished (May 2019). More details on the work underaken can be found here:
