Rights of Way Improvement Plan

How we assess current access to the countryside, and propose to ensure it meets future needs.

West Sussex County Council is currently consulting on the reviewed Rights of Way Improvement Plan.

This second Plan has been called the West Sussex Rights of Way Management Plan 2018-2028 to bring more weight and focus to the management of the existing Public Rights of Way network and to identify ways improvements will be prioritised and progressed.

You can comment on the draft plan by visiting our consultation page.

The consultation closes on Wednesday 31 January 2018.

The current West Sussex Rights of Way Improvement Plan 2007-2017 (RoWIP) outlines our assessment of:

  • the extent to which the rights of way network meets the present and likely future needs of users
  • the opportunities provided by local rights of way for exercise and other forms of open-air recreation
  • the accessibility of local rights of way to blind and partially sighted persons and others with mobility difficulties.

It also identifies actions for the management of local rights of way and securing an improved network of rights of way.
