Rights of way improvement plan 2020-2030
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 Buckinghamshire RoWIP 2020 – 2030 which was adopted by Buckinghamshire (Unitary) Council in April 2020.
Consultations were carried out in Spring and Autumn 2019 to identify the present and future needs of countryside users and also asked for the views of the public and local organisations about what our priorities should be for improving public rights of way. We received an outstanding level of responses - around 1,500 - showing us how important our public rights of way are to people in Buckinghamshire. We have taken these views into account in producing this plan and the delivery plans which will turn ideas into actions.
The RoWIP 2020 - 2030 sets out our priorities and actions to improve Buckinghamshire’s public rights of way over the next 10 years. These actions will help us to provide a high quality, well maintained public rights of way network. This will help everyone to have the chance to visit Buckinghamshire’s outstanding countryside. It will help people to make active lifestyles and sustainable travel choices and it will help make Buckinghamshire a great place to live, work and visit.
