Rights of Way

Volume 684: debated on Thursday 13 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many rights of way have been reopened or established in the past five years in north-west England.[HL6635]

Responsibility for improving the rights of way network and ensuring that routes are properly recorded and maintained rests with individual local highway authorities. Data on new routes created in the north-west or anywhere else in England are not collected centrally. They could be collected only at disproportionate cost.
