Rights Of Way Improvement Plan - Assessment report

Have your say about access to the countryside

Suffolk has a network of over 3,000 miles of footpaths, bridleways restricted byways and byways*. This network can be used by everyone to visit the countryside, get to and from work, school and for a wide range of recreational purposes.

The Government has asked all county councils to produce a Rights of Way Improvement Plan. This ten-year plan will play a central role in how we improve our footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways and byways in the future. As part of this process the assessment report for the plan is now complete.

Although the consultation period is over we are still interested in your comments.
