The ‘Rights of Way Improvement Plan’ is a ten-year strategy document, produced by the Council to assess the extent to which the public rights of way network in Bradford meets the current and likely future needs of the public. It includes an Action Plan demonstrating what we plan to do to secure an improved network.
Chapters 1 to 3 detail the process and consultations that were carried out, Chapter 4 covers policy and Chapters 5 and 6 include and assessment of resources and an Action Plan describing improvements planned for the next few years.
Over 260 potential improvements to the rights of way network were sent to us during the consultation period for this document; either suggesting changes to existing paths that would make them easier to use or promote, or ideas for additional paths by either making new ones or upgrading existing ones to allow a wider range of users.
We have prioritised some of these ideas to take forward, resulting in:
The Action Plan determines specific activity year on year and is intended to be flexible and dynamic. It will be reviewed annually and new suggestions will be incorporated where they fit with the priorities.
