Name: Rights of Way Improvement Plan


Have your say on the Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP)

The rights of way network in Portsmouth connects people of all ages and abilities to recreation, history and culture and shopping areas.

There are over 100 footpaths across Portsmouth that are part of our network. By taking part in our Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP) consultation you can help us to develop a clearly defined plan that supports a high quality, well maintained public rights of way network.

Your views will help us to decide what to focus on to further improve our vision to create a Rights of Way network in Portsmouth which meets the needs and expectations of residents and visitors.

The consultation is open for 14 weeks from 15 November 2021 to 25 February 2022.

What is consulted on and why?

The ROWIP sets out a clear action plan for managing, developing and improving the rights of way network for residents and visitors.

The plan highlights the key requirements for the council to meet its statutory duty as the highway authority and identifies opportunities to improve the rights of way network.

Your views will help us understand how you use the network, whether we are focusing on the right actions to meet the needs and expectations of Portsmouth residents and visitors, and if there is anything further that needs to be considered.
