Rights of way improvement plan
All highway authorities are required to have in place a rights of way improvement plan (ROWIP). This should be reviewed every ten years.
Have your say on the new rights of way improvement plan
Our first rights of way improvement plan was produced in 2008. We are now carrying out a review and intend to produce a new plan in 2019. This improvement plan must set out how the public rights of way network will meet the current and future needs of the public.
Our public survey is open between 28 January and 31 March 2019. We would like to hear from Buckinghamshire residents, organisations, businesses, district councils and parish councils.
What happens next?
Between April and August 2019 we will look at all the information we receive and write a draft of the new Buckinghamshire rights of way improvement plan.
We will hold a public consultation between September and November 2019 to invite comments on the proposed plan.
How to get in touch about ROWIP2
The process of developing the ROWIP2 is being supported by an external consultant, Sharon Bayne. If you would like to find out more please get in touch.

Current rights of way improvement plan
The current plan was published in March 2008.
The plan outlined how we intended to manage and improve the public rights of way network until the end of 2018.
The plan set out an eight-themed approach to improving access and sought to deliver the wider aims of the Council's Corporate Plan, Local Transport Plan, and Community Strategy.
