Review of Public Rights of Way

A public right of way is a path that anyone, by law has the right to use.

Surrey County Council is responsible for around 2164 miles of public rights of ways. These paths are in both the countryside and urban areas. They are important for enjoying and exploring, for travelling to work or school and for health and wellbeing.

Work has now begun to update Surrey County Council’s Rights of Way Improvement Plan. The current plan dates back to 2014. These plans set out how the public rights of way network can meet everyone’s needs now and in the future.  

A public online survey has been set up and Surrey County Council hope as many members of the public will complete it as possible. 

You can find the survey is at and closes at midnight on 10 March 2024.
