Rights of Way Improvement Plan
The Rights of Way Improvement Plan was Published in 2007.
You can view and download the plan from the links below.
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.
The provisions of the Rights of Way Improvement Plan are described in the following pages:
