Rights of Way Consultation
18 July 2017
Gwynedd Council are working closely with the Snowdonia National Park Authority reviewing our Rights of Way Improvement Plan.
In Gwynedd, the public has access to around 3,700km of Rights of Way. This includes 3,340km of footpaths and around 380km of bridleways and byways.
Gwynedd Council receive many enquiries from the public on a yearly basis regarding defects on the paths, which include issues such vegetation overgrowth, broken stiles or fallen trees. The maintenance work is carried out with the co-operation of Community Councils, landowners and volunteers.
As part of the review, the Council are eager to obtain widespread views from the local people so that they can proactively identify, prioritise and plan the future management of the Rights of Way network. This will ensure continued access to the countryside for the benefit of walkers, cyclists, horse riders, individuals with mobility problems and others.
