There are two live county-wide consultations which may be of particular interest to Dunsfold residents. These are due to be considered by Dunsfold Parish Council at its February meeting:
Surrey County Council Rights of Way survey
Surrey County Council is seeking the views of residents on the county’s Rights of Way to help inform a new Rights of Way Improvement Plan.
The County Council is responsible for around 2,164 miles (3,482 km) of paths known as ‘public rights of way’ in both the countryside and urban areas. Accessing these paths is important for residents to enjoy and explore, travel to work or school and for health and wellbeing.
A public right of way is a path that anyone, by law, has the right to use. There are four types:
- Footpaths for walking, mobility scooters or powered wheelchairs
- Bridleways for walking, horse riding, cycling, mobility scooters or powered wheelchairs
- Restricted byways for walking, horse riding, cycling, mobility scooters or powered wheelchairs and horse-drawn carriages
- Byways for all modes including motorised vehicles
