Public rights of way modification orders

Public rights of way modification orders

How are modification orders made?

A modification order may be made by the council either on it's own initiative or following an application to the authority by any organisation or individual.

Modification orders are means to create a new right of way, to add an existing path to the definitive map, to alter the route of a path, to change the status or to extinguish a right of way. 

It is the responsibility of the surveying authority, which is Wokingham Borough Council, to keep the definitive map up to date by making Modification Orders as and when necessary.

Definitive public rights of way map

The definitive map is the legal record of public rights of way. It is accompanied by the definitive statement which contains specific information about a route such as its position or width. The definitive map and statement are available for public inspection at our civic office at Shute End or at the Countryside office at Dinton Pastures Country Park.

Register of definitive map modification orders

The register is designed to increase knowledge among landowners, users of rights of way and the general public about applications which could result or have resulted in changes to to the definitive map and/or statement. The register will also avoid duplication where an application has already been made.
