Definitive Map and Statement

The Definitive Map is a legal record of the public’s rights to use footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways and byways open to all traffic.

A Definitive Statement accompanies the Map, which describes the route of each right of way in greater detail, some widths and any restrictions on use.

The Definitive Map and Statement provide a snapshot of the state of the rights of way network at one particular point in time, which is known as the ‘Relevant Date’.

How up to date is the Definitive Map?

The Definitive Map and Statement for Bracknell Forest Borough has a Relevant Date of 1 January 2013.

This second consolidated version incorporates all modification orders which have been made and confirmed since 2000. This includes changes such as path diversions, creations and closures, and changes to the Statement alone, including defined widths and updated descriptions.

Meanwhile the council updates working copies of the Map and Statement.

How can I find out which rights of way are on the Definitive Map and Statement?

The electronic copies below are not a legal record and you should consult the hard copies of the Map and Statement if you are buying a property or making a planning application.

Hard copies are available for inspection free of charge at our Time Square office.
