Footpaths and bridleways
Footpaths and Rights of Way are dealt with by Derbyshire County Council. They are legally obliged to protect and assert your rights to use the Rights of Way Network and to update the Definitive Map and Statement (the legal record of Rights of Way for the county).
They deal with disputed routes, obstructions to paths, signing paths from roads, path maintenance, path structures (bridges, gates and stiles) and promoting the use of the network.
As a district council we are responsible for the diversion of footpaths, please contact us on 01246 242424 for an application form and guidance notes.
