Surrey CC want your views on ROW

Work is beginning on a review of Surrey County Council’s Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP). Surrey County Council is seeking the views of your council prior to drafting the new ROWIP so that the document reflects local priorities. 

Surrey County Council is responsible for around 2164 miles (3482 km) of public footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways and byways open to all traffic across the whole of Surrey County. 

Surrey County Council’s ROWIP is an important strategic policy document, which the council is required by law to have in place. It sets out how Surrey County Council can make sure the public rights of way network meets the needs of the public, now and in the future. The process of reviewing the ROWIP, and the engagement being carried out before the new ROWIP is drafted, will help the council to better understand the needs of Surrey County residents.

A public questionnaire for individual councillors or members of the public is available at 

The survey will close on 10th March 2024.
