Rights of Way Improvement Plan

Leeds Rights of Way Improvement Plan has been produced in response to the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. Based on information from the public we have produced a ten year improvement plan for our rights of way network.  There are various recommendations for how footpaths, bridleways and byways could be improved over the next 10 years.  These include;

  • better signposting and waymarking
  • improvements to safety at road/path junctions
  • providing extra paths to link gaps in the network

You can download a copy of the Rights of Way Improvement Plan in sections as pdfs at the bottom of the page.
The Leeds Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP), forms a ten year management plan, setting out areas for  improvement across the public rights of way network within the Leeds district.

The ROWIP links to aims and priorities  at both a national and local level, such as the West Yorkshire Local Transport Plan, Vision for Leeds, Leeds Strategic Plan, Cultural, Sport and Recreation Strategies.

As the Local Authority, we have a statutory duty to publish a Rights of Way Improvement Plan for Leeds highlighting improvements which are over and above the basic statutory requirements. The Leeds ROWIP will be reviewed again by 2017.
