What is the Countryside Access and RoW Improvement Plan?
The ROWIP is a five year strategic document covering the whole of Lincolnshire, setting out how the authority intends to improve the management, provision and promotion of public rights of way in the county.
The CROW Act required assessments to be made of:
- The extent to which local rights of way meet the present and likely future needs of the public
- The opportunities provided by local rights of way for exercise and other forms of open-air recreation and the enjoyment of the authority’s area
- The accessibility of local rights of way to blind or partially sighted persons and others with mobility problems, and
- Such other matters relating to local rights of way as the Secretary of State may direct
The first Lincolnshire Countryside Access and Rights of Way Improvement Plan was published in April 2007.
