Cabinet Decision: 21st June 2018
Title of Item/Report
Rights of Way Improvement Plan 2018-2023
Record of the Decision
Consideration was given to a report on The Rights of Way Improvement Plan (RoWIP).

The RoWIP was a statutory document required under the Countryside and Rights of Way (CROW) Act 2000. The first RoWIP was adopted by the Council in 2008 as a 10 year policy document which covered the period between 2008-2018 in respect of the management and improvements of the local rights of way network.

Works had been undertaken to prepare the 2nd RoWIP which would cover the period between 2018 and 2023. This new document provided an update of works and improvements carried out on the rights of way network over the last 10 years.

The purpose of the report was to seek Members’ approval to adopt the Council’s 2nd Rights of Way Improvement Plan (2018-2023) for Stockton as a 5 year policy document.

The ROWIP was attached to the report.

RESOLVED that the Council’s 2nd Rights of Way Improvement Plan (2018-2023) be approved.
Reasons for the Decision
The Council has a statutory responsibility to produce a Public Rights of Way Improvement and it is therefore necessary to seek Cabinet’s approval to the draft document to enable it to be produced in its final version.
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected
