Public Rights of Way

Definitive Map Review

What is it?

The Definitive Map is the record of all public rights of way within the county. The County Council is legally required to keep the Definitive Map of public rights of way under continuous review and to make modifications where it appears that routes should be added, re-graded or deleted. Devon County Council achieves this by carrying out a parish-by-parish review across the county.

If you would like to provide information about added, re-graded or deleted routes please use our standard User Evidence or Landowner Evidence Forms, which can be found on our Useful Forms page.
