Public Rights of Way are defined on a Definitive Map (last revised June 1994) available from Wiltshire County Council.
Landowners – The Guidance from the Government’s “Public rights of way: landowner responsibilities” states that:
Structures for Access
Where a stile or gate on a public right of way is your responsibility, you must maintain it so it is safe and reasonably easy to use.
You can claim 25% or sometimes more of the cost of any replacement work from the highway authority. Some authorities provide materials, or others may carry out the work themselves.
The Lead Parish Councillor for the Rights of Way is Colin Read.
