Rights of way – have your say!

North Somerset Council is looking for views on how to improve the area’s Public Rights of Way network in a consultation that opened at noon today (Monday 22 August).

Public Rights of Way (PRoW) provide people with permission to access land, allowing them to pass along routes whenever they choose. All PRoW can be walked on, while some are also open to horseriders, cyclists or motorcyclists.

The current draft ten-year plan proposes five key objectives, to be delivered by 31 actions. People are invited to have their say on:

  • what their priorities are for the PRoW network,
  • what they would like from the service, and
  • how walking, equestrian and cycling opportunities for all can be improved.

The responses received from the consultation will help finalise an improvement plan to be considered by the Executive in December 2022.

Councillor Mike Solomon, North Somerset Council’s executive member for neighbourhoods and community services, said: “We want our Public Rights of Way network to be connected, accessible and well-maintained. It’s crucial that we plan to meet not only current but future needs of users. Public Rights of Way have so many benefits – they encourage engagement with the natural environment and promote health through exercise and leisure – and all while helping to reduce carbon emissions.

“I encourage people to get involved and tell us what they would like to see. Their views will really make a difference and help us to shape the way we deliver the service.”

To find out more and take part in the consultation by 2pm on Friday 7 October, visit: www.n-somerset.gov.uk/RightsofWay2022.

To find out more about the PRoW network across North Somerset, visit: www.n-somerset.gov.uk/publicrightsofway.

During the seven-week consultation period, several engagement sessions are being held to get the views of town and parish councils. The council is also seeking feedback from organisations including The Ramblers’ Association, Bridleways and Access North Somerset, Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Sustrans.
