We are currently consulting on the draft version of our new Rights of Way Improvement Plan at Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP) 4 consultation. The closing date for comments is 5.00pm on Wednesday 26 July 2023. 

Rights of Way Improvement Plan

The Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROW) is a statutory document that enables highways authorities to create a more modern access and rights of way network.

Walk, cycle, ride

Our current ROW is called Walk, Cycle Ride.

Our vision is to develop a high quality path network fit for 21St century travel, recreation and enjoyment. We will:

  • prioritise resources to focus on key access
  • improve paths which serve specific purposes and fulfil greatest demand such as important utility and recreation paths around communities
  • create vital links between and within access networks to provide a more comprehensive network where need is justified
