Surrey County Council is responsible for around 2164 miles (3482 km) of public footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways, and byways open to all traffic across the whole of the County. A new Rights Of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP) is being drafted which sets out how Surrey County Council can make sure the public rights of way network meets the needs of the public, now and in the future.
Hambledon Parish Council will be giving feedback on what improvements can be made within the Parish. We are looking for additional feedback from those who use the network, please get in touch with the clerk if you have any thoughts you would like to add.
Suggestions may include:
- gaps between almost adjacent rights of way,
- sections of footpaths which become all but impassable to those on foot,
- sections where a right of way is severed or is busy that could benefit from being bridged.
Please get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 26th January 2024.
Surrey County Council have also provided a questionnaire that you can fill out that goes directly to them: https://www.surreysays.co.uk/environment-and-infrastructure/rowip-public . This questionnaire closes on 10th March 2024.
