Gwynedd Council Rights of Way Improvement Plan

The consultation period has ended. The results will be available soon. 


Gwynedd Council has prepared a Rights of Way Improvement Plan which sets out the direction to meet the needs of walkers, people with a mobility impairment, cyclists and horse riders, as well as addressing the challenges of maintaining paths and keeping them open.

The document sets the direction and priorities for the area of work for the period up to 2028/29 and the Council are eager to gather feedback from residents and representatives of organisations on the document by completing the survey which is now open.

Gwynedd Council Rights of Way Improvement Plan

The Council is responsible for the county’s rights of way network, which is around 2,360 miles (3,800Km) in length, as well as popular paths such as the Lonydd Glas.

This network enables access to the countryside, to the coast and urban green spaces and we’ve seen how important our paths are to people's well-being during the COVID-19 period. In addition to this, the network is also a resource which is widely used by visitors to the area and enables traffic free traveling - for example to work and school.

The feedback will be used to prepare the final Gwynedd Council’s Rights of Way Improvement Plan, which will be active up to 2028/29.

The consultation period has been extended to 30 September 2022.
