Notts County Council are asking local residents to inform them at 0115 977 4802 if they are aware of any public footpaths on arable land in the parish that are being obstructed by crops.
Senior Rights of Way Officer for the joint partnership, Jane Baines, is anxious to ensure that obstructions do not take place and says they will write to any farmers who do not heed requests to rectify the position where blockage are allowed to occur.
The County say that where obstructions do occur they will ask the farmers to remove them or the County Council will carry out the work and charge the farmer for it.
The Borough say they would hope to be able to appoint the wardens in every parish in their area, and are to launch their project at Rushcliffe Country Park at Ruddington on Saturday June 22, between 11.30am and 3pm.
Tree wardens can be appointed by their local parish council and would be the parish contact for all things tree related in their area. One of their jobs would be to report early signs of pest, disease and vandalism as well as gathering information, survey and record information about trees important for wildlife and the heritage of the parish. They would also be able to look out for opportunities to plant more trees in the local community, enhancing the environment for parishioners.
Mr Paul Phillips, the Environmental Sustainability Officer for the Borough, says he can be contacted on 0115 9148595 and he would be happy to pass on more information to anyone interested.
Meet the councillors here.
