Public and Private Rights of Way

A public right of way may be in the form of a footpath, bridleway, restricted byway, byway open to all traffic or a public road that can be used by all members of the public. All of these, except public roads, are recorded on the Definitive Map and can be modified by an application for reaction, upgrading or deletion.

A private right of way is an easement / right to use someone else’s land/property as a means of access or egress that may be given to an individual or group of individuals.

We work closely with our Specialist Land Law team in advising and representing parties in relation to disputes concerning public and private rights of way.

Rights of way disputes are very common for both individuals and companies.

Whether you own or are using the land, it is important to reach a resolution quickly and avoid negative interaction escalating.
