Cycle tracks orders
Under the Cycle Tracks Act 1984, the Council has the power to convert public footpaths into cycle tracks. The public has a right of way on foot only on public footpaths. On a cycle track, the public has a right of way on both foot and pedal cycle.
The process for Cycle Tracks Orders is outlined below:
- The proposal, usually put forward by local communities and user groups, is assessed
- An informal consultation is carried out to inform the decision of the Public Rights of Way Committee whether or not to make an Order
- If an Order is made, public notice of the Order is advertised on site, in the press, on this website and notices are sent to consultees
- There is a period of time for objections to be raised to the Order
- Unopposed Orders are confirmed and advertised
- Opposed Orders are sent to the Secretary of State for determination
Consultations are sent to Ward Members, Cheshire East Council internal consultees, Town/Parish/Borough Council, Utility Companies (whose services may run on/under a Public Right of Way), the Ramblers (national and local groups), Border Bridleways Association etc. Public notices are also placed on site, on this website, and in a local newspaper.
