What we maintain

1. Surfaces

The County Council are responsible for the surface of public rights of way, ensuring they are in a condition suitable for path users. Where an issue is identified an inspection will be carried out and any work required will be assessed as part of our annual surfacing programme, according to a prioritised system.

Where a right of way is used for private vehicle access, the landowner should ensure it remains in a suitable condition for path users and any work that will affect the path should be done in consultation with the County Council.
