Public Rights of Way form an important part of the highway network and are statutorily protected. They are used recreationally by walkers, horseriders, cyclists and motorists, and also serve as a part of the overall transport hierarchy. This is reflected by reference to them in the North Lincolnshire Council Local Agenda 21 declaration.
The Milestones approach is a Countryside Agency initiative to ensure legally defined, properly maintained and well-publicised public rights of way networks by the year 2000. A Milestones statement is in effect a business plan, covering all the work required to ensure such a network of public rights of way.
A complete copy of the Milestones Statement is available for you to download and print. It is in PDF format and will therefore require a suitable reader, such as that produced by Adobe, to view it. The reader can be downloaded free from the Adobe website (instructions are provided). Please note this document is quite large and therefore may take some time to download.
If you would like more information about the plan, its contents or wish to make comments please contact Colin Wilkinson (Senior Rights of Way Officer) on 01724 297000 or by email at email@example.com.
