The current ROWIP was agreed in 2007 and resulted in a Vision for the Vale’s public rights of way network:
“To provide, maintain and improve the network of
Public Rights of Way and countryside access for everyone"
"To enable and encourage increasingly convenient and responsible
use and enjoyment of the Vale's countryside and coast”.
This is underlain by six key principles:
- Access for all
- Management strategy
- Sustainable improvements
- Better information
- Improved network of routes
- Wider context
