Rights of way improvement plan

​What is the improvement plan for?

The approved Northamptonshire Rights of Way Improvement Plan was published on Tuesday 20 November 2007. It shows what we intend doing to improve the quantity and quality of access to the countryside over the next few years.

As well as a detailed action plan, the document explains how public rights of way and access routes fit in with other important strategies such as the local transport plan, growth strategies, the healthy lifestyle agenda and agri-environment schemes.
