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.

The Public Rights of Way Forum is open to anyone with an interest in rights of way.

We would especially welcome landowners and tenants to the Forum, as representatives from these groups are currently under-represented
