Rights of Way Improvement Plan 2017 – 2022 – Questionnaire

We are asking to share your thoughts by completing this questionnaire about our next 5 year plan for the improvement of the Borough’s Public Rights of Way network.

We are responsible for nearly 1,000km of Public Footpaths, Bridleways and Byways Open to all Traffic across the Borough. We would like to know your views on how we could improve these routes as well as encouraging more people to enjoy and use them.

The Borough Council faces some difficult times ahead with planned Government reductions in our overall Council budget in the region of £27million. We will have to take some difficult decisions in the years ahead and as a result will need to prioritise the work that we carry out on the network. This questionnaire will help us to identify the priorities for the users of the Rights of Way network and give us an insight into what people need both now and in the future.

 Your Council’s views and the views of residents are important to us.  Please can you help us by publicising to your residents on your website and any social media.  

You can complete an online feedback form here

Paper copies of the survey are available at Borough Hall, Customer Service Centre and all 5 Bedford Borough Libraries. We can also send paper copies to you on request.

The consultation is open until Friday 3 March 2017

Kind regards
