To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if he will take steps to ensure that property owners in rural areas are aware of possible future claims for a public right of way through the Discovering Lost Ways Project. (102579)

The Discovering Lost Ways Project will comply with all the existing statutory requirements for notifying property owners of public rights of way claims. These include serving notice of applications on landowners or occupiers. In addition, the project will seek ways to keep property owners, landowners, land managers and their representative groups fully informed in order to provide accurate and timely information for their area and make them aware of any potential public rights of way claims well in advance.
