The Hobhouse Report

The Hobhouse Report is a document concerning the state of rights of way in the UK. Written by Somerset District Councillor Henry Hobhouse, the report highlights both good and bad features of public footpaths in the UK, plus suggestions for changes. We at Intrusive Footpaths recommend it as a comprehensive assessment of footpath law in our country.


A Sample Application Pack for a Diversion

This is the Application Pack for the Vale of Glamorgan.  Each local authority(LA) will have its own procedures and may or may not have an application pack. Ask your LA if it has a procedure and/or an Application Pack. Your diversion issue MAY be governed by section 119 of the Highways Act 1980 so do your research – if possible get a professional  legal opinion.
