New local plan for Rights of Way

Rights of Way

Bracknell Forest Council has just published a new plan, which aims to improve local rights of way for the benefit of all users.

A right of way is a route that the public has a legal right to use and includes footpaths, bridleways and byways. The Rights of Way Improvement Plan sets out how Bracknell Forest Council will work with partners to manage and promote this local network over the next 10 years.

Cllr Iain McCracken, executive member for culture, resources & public protection, said:

“Rights of Way are an important part of our heritage; they provide opportunities for recreation, sustainable travel and help to boost tourism and the local economy.

Our goal is to work with local groups, such as the Local Countryside Access Forum, to maintain and further enhance the excellent network we already have in Bracknell Forest so that people of all ages and abilities are able to explore and enjoy the borough by foot, bicycle, horse, scooter and wheelchair.”

A copy of the new plan is available on the our Rights of Way pages, where you can also find out how you can get involved in promoting rights of way and outdoor recreation in Bracknell Forest borough.
