Parish Paths Partnership

The Parish Paths Partnership Scheme will no longer be available from
1 April 2016.

What is the Parish Paths Partnership (P3)?

Local communities work in partnership with the county council to improve and promote the rights of way network in their area. P3 groups are encouraged to take a proactive approach to keep their rights of way in good condition and easy to use.

Although P3 is a partnership the county council, as the Highway Authority, will remain ultimately responsible for maintenance and enforcement on all rights of way recorded on the Definitive Map.

What can P3 groups do?

  • Organise mowing of rights of way (RoW)
  • Clear overgrown RoW
  • Install waymarks and fingerposts
  • Replace stiles with gates or gaps
  • Install/repair bridges
  • Liaise with local landowners
  • Carry out regular surveys
  • Promote local walks/rides via leaflets/map/website etc

Advice and technical support is always available from your local rights of way officer and the countryside access team.

What funding is available?

Grants may be available from the county council for:

  • Equipment
  • Materials
  • Volunteer training
  • Insurance
  • Specialist services (for example, mowing)
  • Promotional material

Once a project has been approved, the P3 group will receive an initial payment of 50% of the estimated total costs. The remainder of the grant will be paid when the project is completed.
