Consultation on how we can improve access to Suffolk's countryside

We wanted to hear what you think about the public rights of way network in the Suffolk countryside.

This consultation has now closed.

Countryside paths, otherwise known as public rights of way, include footpaths, bridleways, byways and restricted byways. We wanted to know how Suffolk residents use public rights of way, and what they think of them.

Rights of Way Improvement Plan

The current Rights of Way Improvement Plan 2006 to 2016 highlights our commitment to maintain and improve the rights of way network in Suffolk. It sets out the management, improvement and maintenance of Suffolk's public rights of way.

The aim of this consultation was to hear your thoughts on Suffolk's public rights of way, which will then inform the content of a new Rights of Way Improvement Plan.
