Rights of Way Improvement Plan consultation
We are currently undertaking the first 10 year review of the Rights of Way Improvement Plan.
The requirement to produce this plan arose from the Countryside and Rights of Way (CROW) Act 2000 and with it there is a duty to review the plan on a 10 year basis.
What does the plan do?
The ten year plan sets out how the council is going to identify, prioritise and plan for any improvements to the local rights of way network and other land with public access - and in doing so make better provision for walkers, cyclists, equestrians, carriage drivers, off road motorists and people with mobility problems.
We will be seeking your views again soon
We are now drafting a new improvement plan for the next ten years which takes account of your feedback, our budget and the network evaluation (health check) that has been completed. We will be seeking your views on this draft plan during a 12 week consultation in the autumn.
