The Tyne and Wear Rights of Way Improvement Plan 2011 - 2021 is a blueprint for improving the network of public rights of way across Tyne and Wear.
The main aims of the Plan are to:
* Consider the present and future needs of the general public and users * Look at the need for exercise, recreation and enjoyment of the countryside, and access to the countryside * To consider the accessibility needs of visually and mobility-impaired people, both now and in the future.
The Plan, which includes a Statement of Action, has been produced by the Rights of Way Officers from each authority and officers from the Local Transport Plan Core Team for Tyne and Wear. A wide consultation process received positive responses from members of the public, users and landowners.
