Rights of Way Improvement Plan
Under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 West Berkshire's Rights of Way Improvement plan was adopted on 27 May 2010
This Plan is an assessment of the extent to which local rights of way meet the present and likely future needs of the public. Also, the opportunities provided by local rights of way (and in particular by footpaths, cycle tracks, bridleways and restricted byways) for access and other forms of open-air recreation and the enjoyment of the West Berkshire area. It is also an assessment of the accessibility of local rights of way to blind or partially - sighted people and others with mobility problems. For further information on the Rights of Way Act 2000 please click on the link to DEFRA - Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs.
To make this assessment we needed to identify where the provision falls short of current or future needs, and how we can best make improvements to address this. Therefore, as part of this work we carried out a wide public consultation, which has now finished, and the draft plan is available here ROWIP Adopted 27th May 2010 [390kb].
