Confirmed public path orders

We have recently moved to a new mapping system. Please bear with us if there are any issues as we will be working on fixing those as fast as we can.

Changes to the public rights of way network may only be made by way of a legal order. Depending on the circumstances, the statutory provisions of the Highways Act 1980, Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and Town and Country Planning Act 1990 allow us to follow a procedure to propose changes to create, divert or extinguish a public path. Once made, an order is advertised by way of a notice which specifies a period and procedure for lodging objections to the proposed changes. If objections are made, we can refer an order to the Planning Inspectorate for determination. This may be by way of a public inquiry, hearing or written representations. If an order is unopposed, we may confirm the order. Any change made as a result of a confirmed public path order is recorded on the Definitive Map of Public Rights of Way (the legal document).

Districts, Boroughs and other authorities such as the Peak Park, also make Public Path Orders. You may need to contact these authorities directly for details.

The map below shows Public Path Orders that are currently in progress or completed, that we are aware of. If you click on one of the lines showing a public path order, the text will say either may alter / add / remove or will add / alter / modify / remove. The difference is that those lines saying “may” have Orders in the process of being made whereas those lines saying “will”, have Orders that have been completed and confirmed and are awaiting consolidation onto the Definitive Map of Public Rights of Way. For more information about this, please contact rightsofway@staffordshire.gov.uk.
