We want to keep you informed and involved in
the development of the public rights of way network.
As we work towards the delivery of our Countryside Access Improvement
Plan, there will be opportunities to develop the
rights of way network on which we would value your opinion.
Definitive Map Consultation
We’re updating (consolidating) our 1987 maps
by creating new maps with up-to-date base mapping and making sure
all path changes are shown.
We have to publicise a number of notices in the local press
and on site about orders it has made. If an order is confirmed
(authorised), this will lead to a change to the public rights of
way network; for instance, the diversion of a public footpath.
Below is a list of public consultations for current orders:
Please note that if you object to some types of order and
maintain the objection, the matter must be forwarded to the
Secretary of State for determination.
You may be liable for the costs incurred by us, if your
objection is found to be irrelevant or frivolous by the Secretary
of State at any subsequent public inquiry or hearing.
