Rights of Way Plan

Rights of Way Management Plan 2018 - 2026

Have your say on how rights of way in Nottinghamshire are managed

A new rights of way management plan has been developed which will run from 2018 to 2026.

The draft plan provides the context for future management and maintenance of Nottinghamshire’s rights of way - a network of 4,000 public footpaths, bridleways and byways.

We would like your views on the plan, and a 12-week consultation will run from 18 January 2018 to 12 April 2018. After this date, we will consider the feedback and publish a final plan in August 2018.

The plan won’t be due for another review until 2026, so it’s vital that you have your say now.

Rights of Way Improvement Plan 2007 - 2017

Purpose of the Plan

The first Rights of Way Improvement Plan for Nottinghamshire, published in 2007, is available to view below. It was developed through research, and refined through public consultation on a draft plan during summer 2007.

Published in accordance with the Countryside and Rights of Way (CRoW) Act 2000, it assesses Nottinghamshire's current path network and its ability to cope with future needs. It sets out series of actions designed to improve the path network for residents and visitors.
