Rights of Way Improvement Plan consultation

All highway authorities are required to have a rights of way improvement plan (ROWIP). This should be reviewed every ten years. We have now produced a new draft ROWIP.

Early in 2018 we asked for the views of the public and organisations around what our priorities should be for rights of way.  We received 411 responses showing that in North East Lincolnshire public rights of way are important to people.  We have taken these views into account in producing this draft plan.

The plan sets out our priorities and actions to improve North East Lincolnshire’s public rights of way over the next 10 years. These actions will help us to provide a well maintained public rights of way network. 

This consultation is your chance to have your say on North East Lincolnshire Council’s draft rights of way improvement plan. 

The consultation will help us to check whether we have come to the right conclusions and have included the right actions. Your responses to this consultation will help us produce the final version of the rights of way improvement plan. The final draft of the plan will be finished in late 2020 and then adopted by the council.
