Quick link: The Definitive Statement of Public Rights of Way in Figheldean

The debate on the Countryside Act 2000 is interesting because it highlights a desire by the Government to complete the historic record of rights of way by a deadline of 2026.

An effect of this will be that any historic rights of way (ie existing pre-1949 and not on the definitive map already) will be automatically extinguished, and in all likelihood lost forever.

Here is a link to a list of frequently asked questions about rights of way, drawn up by the Institute of Public Rights of Way Management.

Also included are some other links you may find useful.

Writing as the chap now responsible for the Parish's rights of way, I aim to be taking a more pro-active approach especially regarding maintenance issues.

So far, three broken footpath signs have been replaced, and the fallen tree that obstructs Figheldean Path #1 on the southern side of its junction with the road to Syrencot House is scheduled to be removed by the relevant folk from the council/highways team.
