About the Definitive Map and Statement

3. Landowner deposits

Landowners can take steps to protect their land from rights of way and town or village green claims.

To do this, a landowner can deposit a map and statement registering any existing public rights of way and town or village greens on their land. This confirms that no new rights of way or village greens have been dedicated and that public use of the land will not count towards the establishment of new public rights.
