Wrexham County Borough Rights of Way Improvement Plan 2019
Wrexham County Borough Council is committed to working towards improving its rights of way network. We have taken a strategic look at what we have and how it could be improved for people living, working and visiting Wrexham. The Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP) process, as required by the Welsh Government, sets out how we will do this.
There have been major improvements to Wrexham’s public rights of way network over the last ten years, funded by Wrexham County Borough Council and grants from the Welsh Government.
The new Rights of Way Improvement Plan needs to be viewed in the context of the continued reduction in Wrexham County Borough Council Budget, which has led to less resources available for Council services. The Council budget reductions coupled with the ceasing of the Welsh Government Rights of Way Improvement Plan grant means, the Plan is of necessity focused in its approach on the highest priorities.
I hope you will take time to read the plan, it is a result of an extensive consultation from December 2016 to October 2018. We have consulted many different groups and people and we hope we have captured their priorities and put them in the Statement of Action.
We can continue to improve our rights of way and we believe this plan sets out how we will do this.
