Coronavirus update

We receive a large number of reports and are regrettably not always able to resolve your reported issues as soon as we would like. Due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, our office based staff are working from home. To comply with social distancing, the work our Rights of Way work crews and path maintenance volunteers are able to carry out is restricted. We will continue to prioritise work to resolve high priority issues, however, some of our work areas may be restricted during this time.

Please continue to report online and we will endeavour to resolve your issue as soon as possible.

Buckinghamshire’s Public Rights of Way remain open, however, please follow government guidance, wash hands, wear a face covering and keep a 2 metre space.


Report an issue 

Report an issue on a public footpath, bridleway or byway online.

This includes:

  • broken stiles
  • overgrown vegetation or fallen trees
  • damaged or dangerous path surfaces
  • damaged or dangerous bridges
  • damaged or missing signposts and waymarks

We only manage rights of way shown on the definitive map and do not deal with highways problems on pavements, footways, roads or cycleways. Report a highways problem

Submit a separate report for each individual problem. This helps us to identify and inspect the correct location and update you on progress more accurately.

How long it takes to fix an issue

With over 3000kms of rights of way in the County it is necessary to prioritise the issues and problems reported to us.  A Problem Management Matrix has been developed to give each issue a target time according to the nature of the problem and its location.
