Public rights of way enforcement policy

The Regeneration Partnership as Highway Authority, has the duty to protect and assert the right of the public to use and enjoy the public rights of way network, and inevitably this includes appropriate enforcement action where necessary.

In order to support delivery of its duty, it is essential to have in place a detailed policy in order to clearly set out the Highway Authority’s stance when dealing with enforcement issues affecting public rights of way.

The public rights of way enforcement policy, formally adopted on 18th February 2014, clearly reflects legislative requirements, and sets out the legal obligations for those owner/occupiers who have land crossed by a public right of way.

In addition, the Landowner Guidance booklet linked to the Enforcement Policy provides supporting information for owner/occupiers in respect of paths that cross agricultural land, and sets out the Highway Authority’s stance in respect of a reinstatement issue.
