Consultation launches on the county’s Green Access Strategy

Communities are being invited to have their say on the Green Access Strategy - Rights of Way Improvement Plan.

The county council, under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act (2000), is required to put together this plan which identifies changes that will improve rights of way provision for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and those with mobility problems.

The plan, which looks at rights of way access up until 2026, details why green access is so relevant to Suffolk’s population and its visitors, and it focuses on how green access can benefit quality of life.

Suffolk County Council built the strategy on previous work, research and engagement with a range of consultees, such as the Suffolk Local Access Forum, parish councils, local businesses, landowners, users and non-user groups.

The Green Access Strategy represents our commitment as a council to make the very most of the rights of way network and to provide our residents, our business community and our visitors an array of different and innovative opportunities to use, enjoy and benefit from green access.

Councillor Mary Evans, Suffolk County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Rural Issues

The public consultation opened on Monday 8th July 2019 and runs until Friday 20th September. The consultation will provide the council with final feedback before the plan is presented to cabinet later this year. To find out more about the consultation and how you can have your say visit the Suffolk County Council website.
