East Riding of Yorkshire Draft Rights of Way Improvement Plan 2022-2032 Consultation


The Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP) is a strategy document, setting out the overall direction of travel and thematic aims for the development of the public rights of way (PROW) network. We reassess the plan every 10 years and refresh it as necessary.

It does not include details for individual improvements or address specific locations but it helps to guide council officers and the voluntary and community sector partners in the development of a network that is more relevant to more people.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is updating the ROWIP to reflect important changes in the benefits that our countryside paths provide; for example health and well-being, active travel, leisure and recreation, and the social and economic value that the network provides.

We would be grateful if you could provide comments before the end of March 2022.

Once we have comments from stakeholders and the users of the network, we hope to finalise the updated ROWIP in spring of 2022 and publish it in the summer.
