Cornwall Council in its wisdom has recruited new inspectors to inspect all environmental assets including Open Spaces and Rights of Way. All rights of Way are being inspected - not a trivial job. BUT the inspections will not be as thorough as required - Importantly Health and Safety issues will be fixed BUT low branches and side growth are not being considered as an issue requiring any priority attention. See http://www.bhsaccesscornwall.org.uk/AssetSurvey.pdf We are not yet confident of exactly what this survey will deliver for horse riders.
Dedication of Bridleways
Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 16 05 2013 15:09
The process of Express Dedication at Common Law (EDCL) has now been accepted by Cornwall Council as a valid way of adding Rights of Way to the Definitive Map. All that is necessary is for a willing landowner to sign a simple Deed of Dedication and for users to use the path. Cornwall Council then are obliged to add the path to the definitive map. No other Orders are necessary.
