Footpath Diversion Orders

The Council processes applications to divert, extinguish and stop up footpaths and bridleways to allow development to proceed under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

The diversion request can be made at the same time as an application for planning permission however cannot be confirmed until the relevant planning permission is also approved. This process will take more than six months from the date of receipt.

The public still has the right to use the public right of way as long as it is not closed or diverted by law.

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
