In September 2015, Waverley’s Local Area Committee agreed to proceed with formalising the public footpath that leads from the High Street (next to Lloyds Bank) and goes up to College Hill. Here are the committee papers for that decision. The footpath had been blocked by a local property developer, to the anger of residents. The developer appealed the decision.
In December 2016, a decision was made for a Map Modification Order – Footpath 604 Haslemere, meaning the developer had to open up access again. This decision followed a public inquiry held at Haslemere Museum, with representation from Surrey Council Council, The Haslemere Society, The Half Moon Estate Residents’ Association and many residents.

For a long while residents have campaigned to have signage on the footpath.
The signage has been installed this week.
