- The date, time and place of the occurrence.

- What the waste looks like and how much there is.

Reporting a Problem with a Footpath or other Public Right of Way

Problems with paths can be reported using the online questionnaire. They are then assigned a priority rating:

  • Health and safety: for example, there is an immediate danger to the public - Inspected and addressed within 2 working days, which may involve a temporary closure while works are organised to make the route safe.

  • High priority: for example, obstructions or surfacing problems where no alternative route is available - Investigated within 10 working days and works arranged if considered too serious to wait for the scheduled 15 month maintenance programme.

  • Medium priority: for example, obstructions or surfacing problems where there is an alternative route available, broken or missing signs - Inspected as part of the routine 15 month inspection cycle and works completed as part of the routine maintenance or volunteer programmes. If the problem cannot be addressed as part of the routine maintenance programme, for example, larger sections of surfacing, it will be prioritised against other issues in the county and considered for inclusion in our Capital Works Programme.

  • Low priority: for example, minor obstructions where there is an alternative route available, misleading signage, minor issues with stiles etc. - Inspected as part of the routine 15 month inspection cycle and only addressed if resources permit.

  • Not a maintenance priority: for example, improvements to the network or addressing of unavailable paths will be progressed if an opportunity arises and resources permit.
