Good news on registration of footpaths (possibly)

In the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2006 there is a provision that if a right-of-way is not already registered on a definitive map, concerned people will have only until 2026 to ensure that it is so registered.

No. 10 has now responded to a petition on the subject. Although the government has not yielded to the demand to repeal the offending clause, it has promised not to activate it until after a "stakeholder group" has reported on the difficulties raised. At least, that's how I interpret their reply. See for yourself at
