Report a problem on Public Rights of Way
Each year, the
Public Rights of Way and Access Service receives more service
requests than it is able to resolve with the resources available.
While we cannot deal with everything, all reports of problems on
the network and service requests are recorded and are invaluable to
help our Service manage the Public Rights of Way network more
effectively. The information provided assists us in:
- preparing and prioritising programmes of work,
- targeting enforcement to ensure rights of way remain available
- directing the work of Countryside Access Wardens who help keep
paths clear, visible and easy to use
In order to manage the level of service requests efficiently the
Public Rights of Way and Access Service prioritises its work to
ensure the network remains as safe, protected and accessible as
possible. You can read the Public Rights of
Way Management priorities.
In addition, some matters are complex, not easily resolved and may
require action by other parties such as land managers. This means
that some reports will take longer to resolve than others.
If you have encountered a problem on one or more Public Rights
of Way in Kent, please let us know and our Public Rights of Way
team will assess the problem according to our Management Priorities
and proceed accordingly.
