About public rights of way

Other routes

A green lane

This is an unsurfaced track usually bounded by hedges and often established a long time ago. The term has no legal meaning. If there is a public right of way along such a track, it will be classified under one of the above headings

Permitted paths

These are not highways; they are routes that landowners allow the public to use, sometimes for a set period of time. They can be closed at any time but often form valuable links in the path network. The council encourages these (although not as alternatives to recorded public rights of way) and can provide advice and signs to those wishing to establish such paths.

For further information about types of rights of way please refer to GOV.UK - rights of way and accessing land.
