We are encouraging residents to have their say on our ambitious plans to maintain and improve the borough’s rights of way network in a bid to get more people using them.
Securing new pathways and reinstating historic routes that have been lost, are just two of the actions highlighted by the plan, including working with the developers of the Caversham Park estate to allow the use of some paths on the parkland.
