Changes to public rights of way
Buckinghamshire's Definitive Map and Statement
All public rights of way in Buckinghamshire are recorded in the Definitive Map and Statement.
If a way is on the map it is a public right of way, unless there has been a legal change.
If it is not shown, this is not proof that the public has no rights over it and the map may be subject to change.
We have a statutory duty, under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 to:
- keep the map up to date
- investigate any requests to add or delete rights of way
- or to change their status
The map is with the Definitive Statement, which may contain information about an individual path:
- such as start and end point
- the width of the way
It is available at County Hall, Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies and parish councils.
Any extra questions will cost £7.70 each.
