Surrey ROWIP – Landowners

Closed 14 Apr 2024

Opened 21 Feb 2024


Surrey Rights of Way Improvement Plan Questionnaire – Landowners

Surrey County Council is responsible for around 2164 miles (3482 km) of public rights of way. Every council that is responsible for public rights of way must have a Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP). This sets out how public rights of way meet the needs of the public, now and in the future. Our current Rights of Way Improvement Plan dates from 2014 and needs to be reviewed.

Why your views matter

Landowners, farmers and land managers are vital partners in the public rights of way network. It is important that we gain the views of those who manage the land before we draft the new ROWIP.

The process of producing the new ROWIP is being supported by an external consultant. If you need to discuss the process of preparing the new ROWIP please contact Alternatively, please contact Surrey County Council at or on 0300 200 1003.

The survey is open until midnight on Sunday, 14 April 2024.

This survey is to support the Improvement Plan only. If you want to report an issue on a public right of way please click on this link: Contact us or report an issue on a Right of Way - Surrey County Council ( or call 0300 200 1003.
