Rights of way on the map in Rochester

Date: 11/09/2008           Category: Highways Traffic and Parking

Medway Council will be holding a Public Open Day in Rochester, which will identify proposed public rights of way in the area. Under The National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949, the council is required to identify footpaths that have been walked for many years with a view to making them Definitive Public Rights of Way. Maps will be on display showing paths that Medway intends to claim as Public Rights of Way, and council officers will also be on hand to answer any questions and receive information from the public about any paths that are not identified on the map. The Open Day will be held on Wednesday, 24 September from 10am to 4pm at The Corn Exchange, Rochester. For further information please contact the council on 01634 333333 or email prow@medway.gov.uk ENDS Editors: For further information please contact Lisa Caleno on 01634 338308 or email lisa.caleno@medway.gov.uk
