Public rights of way
We, as highway authority for the area, aim to ensure the borough's public rights of way network is properly maintained, recorded on the definitive map and promoted. We work with:
- local communities
- farming interests
We aim to facilitate the use and enjoyment of the entire network by all sections of the population.
There is in excess of 100 miles (160 km) of legally recorded public rights of way in the borough, for which we are responsible.
Our attractive landscape means there are numerous excellent walks throughout the borough.
The Rights of Way Improvement Plan for Merseyside has more information.
