Footpaths & Public Rights of Way

FOOTPATHS & PUBLIC RIGHTS OF WAY

 

The parish has a large network of well used and maintained footpaths which the Parish Council are responsible for maintaining. If you notice a footpath needs maintenance or is blocked please report it, either to the Parish Council or directly to Cornwall Council using the following link:

https://secure.cornwall.gov.uk/selfservice/citizenportal/form.aspx?form=Report_a_highway_or_countryside_issue

 

If you can supply as much detail as possible when reporting problems, such as the reference number of the path, that helps us to quickly identify the path and problem and resolve the issue. A photo is especially helpful of any blockages or damage.

Landowners are responsible for maintaining the side growth, hedges, fences and stiles on footpaths and Cormac are responsible for the surface of the paths.

 

Footpaths are maintained to different levels by the Parish Council (Gold - given top priority, Silver - given priority only when funds are available after spending on Gold paths and Bronze - lowest priority). These can be seen on Cornwall Council's mapping sit, this has a zoomable map of the footpaths and public rights of way, as well as more information on public rights of way.

A group of volunteers and members of the Parish Council have written a pack of local circular walks which is available in our Visitor Centre.
