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.
