Change a right of way
Remove or divert a right of way
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 03000 41 11 01 if you want to apply to divert or remove a right of way.
We’ll arrange for you to meet a case officer on the land to discuss things before you apply.
Costs: If you’re the landowner you’ll have to pay for us to process your application and make the changes if you’re successful.
Examples of when you might apply
- A right of way is no longer needed
- Diverting or removing it is in the interests of the public or the person owning, renting or occupying the land
- You want to protect a site of special scientific interest or school security
- The land is being developed
