Footpaths – December 2021


The Parish Council has no duties to protect or improve footpaths. Since March 2020 is was agreed to work with Cornwall Council under the Local Maintenance Partnership (LMP) agreement, the costs and benefits are to be reported in February 2020.


Most Public rights of way cross private land, which is often the responsibility of the landowner or occupier for the footpath to be safe and usable.


Public rights of way users should be familiar with the Countryside Code and respect other people’s property and includes sticking to the path as shown on up-to-date Ordnance Survey maps.


Ponsanooth Parish Councils focus is for paths to be accessible, with the view to improve them following the first year of the LMP.


Please report any concerns of compliments regarding Ponsanooth Parish Council's footpaths to the Clerk
