Have your say on rights of way plan

OXFORDSHIRE County Council is asking residents for their views about its plan for public rights of way over the next decade.

The county has 1,730 miles of footpaths and 672 miles of bridleways as well as countless signs, stiles, bridges and culverts.

Henley councillor David Nimmo Smith, cabinet member for environment, said: “Oxfordshire’s countryside, urban and rural rights of way and landscape contribute to it being an outstanding place in which to live, work and visit.

“Access to these provides significant economic, health and wellbeing and environmental benefits. County council finances are severely restricted and this is likely to continue over the life of this plan.

“Despite this, we will aim to manage the public rights of way and countryside access network effectively and efficiently, working with communities, farmers, landowners, partner organisations, volunteers and users. Please have a look at the draft plan and have your say.”
