Further advice and guidance for landowners
Before you start
Public Rights of Way are not roadside pavements.
A Public Right of Way can be a public footpath or public bridleway over open countryside as well as pathways and ginnels in and around towns.
Use this form to report any problems with footpaths or bridleways including: overgrown hedges, ploughing complaints and general maintanence requests.
If you'd like to report a problem with a pavement by the side of the road (or footway), please see the
potholes and damaged pavements page.
We will need to know:
- Where the problem is
- What the problem is

A footpath and a footway are legally different things. A footway is a pavement that runs along the road (highway), and a footpath can be a public right of way or a passageway between houses, or over open land.
