Rights of Way Improvement Plan

The Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP) is intended to set out an assessment of the current rights of way network and identify strategic steps which the Councils intend to take in partnership with various stakeholders to improve the network for the benefit of the public.  The draft ROWIP contains a particular emphasis on improving the way that the network is managed in the context of challenging public finances and addressing the challenges and opportunities which arise as a result of the continued high level of development within the three Council areas. A key aim is to increase use of the rights of way network, particularly amongst ethic minorities and members of the public with disabilities.

If you would like to comment on the draft ROWIP, please ensure your comments are received by the Council no later than 31st August 2018.  Comments can be sent by email to rightsofway@southglos.gov.uk or by post to Department for Environment & Community Services, Public Rights of Way, PO Box 1954, Bristol, BS37 0DD.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience
  • All residents
  • General public
