Rights of Way Resolution Pack
Rights of Way may exist over private land or public land. Rights of Way over private land are known as easements and only apply to parcels of land that adjoin each other and only apply between the respective land owners. Rights of Way over public land are rights for the general public to pass over land not belonging to them, subject to restrictions on how they travel the route, e.g. footpaths are to be travelled by foot only, whereas bridleways may be travelled by horse, cycle or foot.
The Rights of Way search provides all documents needed to resolve private and public rights of way, or to select one or the other.
