Contacting Public Rights of Way

Legal orders team

Three Definitive Map Officers and three Public Path Orders Officers deal with Definitive Map enquiries, Definitive Map Modification Orders, Public Path Orders and temporary closures.

Definitive Maps and Statements of Cheshire East's Public Rights of Way are available for public inspection at the team's office during normal office hours. If you wish to see the Map, please phone beforehand to ensure that a member of staff can be on hand to assist with any enquiries you may have. Copies of Public Path Orders and Definitive Map Modification Orders - both current and past - can also be inspected here.

Network management and enforcement team

This team deals with the day to day management of the Public Rights of Way network. There is a team of four Network Management and Enforcement Officers covering the borough.

  • Prior appointment is required before visiting the Network Management and Enforcement team, as officers will very often be out on site.

Countryside access development officer

The Countryside Access Development Officer is responsible for the Rights of Way Improvement Plan and works on projects to promote and improve access to the countryside.
