Rights of Way Improvement Plan

Our Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP) is a sub-strategy to the Reading Transport Strategy 2036 and is used by the Council and its partners.  

This is a wide-ranging plan, covering all aspects of the management, maintenance and improvement of the Public Rights of Way network to meet the current and future needs of the public.

We published our first ROWIP in November 2007. Download our current plan here : Rights of Way Improvement Plan.

We are currently reviewing and updating our ROWIP to ensure that our network is kept up-to-date, well maintained, better integrated in the overall transport network, provides a better experience for its users, and encourages more use for walking and cycling.

As part of the update we are carrying out a survey for all residents to have their say on Reading’s Public Rights of Way Network – to explain how they use the network, identify any barriers and suggest enhancements to the network to include in our updated plan.

Please have your say at Reading’s Public Rights of Way Consultation.

The closing date of the survey is 24 July 2021.

A summary of the responses after the closing date will be published at this location.
