Get involved - public rights of way

There are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in making the best of our countryside and rights of way.

If you are interested in any of the following or require further information, please contact the Public Rights of Way team.

Public Rights of Way Forum

This forum sees users, landowners, tenants, the council and other interested parties working together to promote the use of rights of way. It is an opportunity for dialogue and exchange of information between land occupiers, users and the council. 

It also allows us to share the initiatives and progress made in matters relating to rights of way.

For more information please contact the Public Rights of Way Team
