Changes to the Map and Statement

Changes can be made to the map and statement and fall into two main categories

Public Path Orders – Highways Act 1980, Town & Country Planning Act 1990

Modification Orders – Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981


A member of the public may apply to the Borough Council for a modification order in respect of a public footpath, public bridleway or Byway Open to All Traffic and produce evidence to show that the application falls into one of the following categories. 

1 A right of way shown on the map and statement does not legally exist      

2 A right of way legally exists but is not shown on the present map and statement            

3 Other particulars contained in the Map and Statement are incorrect and need amendment.     

To apply for a modification order you have to follow the procedure laid down in the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981.
