Monmouthshire County Council are currently reviewing the Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP).  This is a strategic document and as part of the review the Council wishes to refocus its rights of way service priorities in recognition of the current and anticipated needs of users, new legislation such as the Health and Well-Being Act etc.,  balanced against an understanding of ongoing resource and budget pressures.

An important element of the ROWIP review process is engaging with interested groups and individuals to help shape and inform the final plan.

If you have an interest in public rights of way or other countryside access opportunities.  Please feel free to complete the questionnaires that are relevant to you as your feedback will greatly assist in MCC's review of the rights of way improvement plan.  Please also feel free to share the questionnaires with others who you think would like to respond.  We would welcome the questionnaires back by the middle of November, to enable evaluation of the results leading to publishing a draft rights of way improvement plan at the end of this year.

If once completing the questionnaire you have further information you would like to share, please feel free to email us at

I should also like to inform you that there will also be an opportunity to attend a workshop to discuss further issues that you would like considered.  You will be informed of the date as soon as possible.

Thank you for your assistance.
