Current public path orders

Current public path orders

Changes to the public rights of way network may only be made by way of a legal order.  Depending on the circumstances, the statutory provisions of the Highways Act 1980, Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and Town and Country Planning Act 1990 allow us to follow a procedure to propose changes to create, divert or extinguish a public path. Once made, an order is advertised by way of a notice which specifies a period and procedure for lodging objections to the proposed changes. If objections are made, we must refer an order to the Planning Inspectorate for determination. This may be by way of a public inquiry, hearing or written representations. If an order is unopposed, we may confirm the order. Any change made as a result of a confirmed public path order is recorded on the Definitive Map of Public Rights of Way (the legal document). 

Below is a table of all the current public path orders. To help you understand the table content better, a glossary is included above the table explaining what the abbreviations mean. Where there's current paperwork, it's identified as a link in the route reference column.  Paperwork from the older orders is available on request. (Be sure to make a note of the route reference your request relates to).
