WILTSHIRE Council is asking residents to comment on the future of rights of way under the new Countryside Access Improvement Plan (CAIP).

It includes how local rights of way can be used for exercise and outdoor activities, and accessibility to the disabled.

Although the guidance focuses on rights of way, it also states that improvements to other routes and areas which allow people to access the countryside need to be considered.

The CAIP outlines the actions Wiltshire Council will take to manage, improve and promote the countryside access network, which includes public rights of way in both rural and urban areas, permissive paths, cycleways, towpaths, parks and forests.

Residents have until March 28 to offer their comments.
