Rights of Way Improvement Plan
Local rights of way are a significant part of our heritage and provide opportunities for recreation as well as access to all kinds of destinations. They provide a convenient means of travelling, particularly for short journeys and are an important way for many people to get fresh air, exercise, walk the dog, improve fitness, walk to school, walk to local bus, train and metro stops and to get to the local shops.
The Rights of Way Improvement Plan for Birmingham was formally adopted in November 2007. It sets out a possible ten-year programme of improvements subject to availability of resources. We will review the proposals periodically to ensure they continue to meet the needs of the people of Birmingham.
An electronic version of the Rights of Way Improvement Plan is available to download from this page by clicking on the files below. It has been broken down into its constituent chapters in order to keep the file sizes manageable.
Maps of the city that were used during the consultation are also available to download below.
