Views are being sought on the proposed Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP).

Ceredigion County Council has a duty to assess the extent to which local rights of way meet the present and likely future needs of the public; the opportunities provided by local rights of way for exercise and other forms of open-air recreation.

The network of public paths in Ceredigion – which total approximately 2500km in length – provides one of the main means by which people can access and enjoy the countryside.

Eifion Jones, Public Rights of Way Officer said, “Rights of Way not only play an integral part of the attraction of Ceredigion to tourists but it also has a vital role in the health and well-being of everyone; tourists and residents alike. The rights of way network contribute to the local travel infrastructure, providing paths from people's homes to local facilities and places of work. The consultation on the proposed plan will run for 12 weeks, allowing residents the opportunity to have their say and we look forward to hearing their views.”
