Public Footpath Orders

Essex Highways has the power to make a Public Path Diversion Order under Section 119 of the Highways Act 1980.

The Highways Act 1980 makes provision for the diversion of footpaths, bridleways and restricted byways (but not byways) where the proposals are in the interests of the owner, occupier or lessee of the land over which the existing and proposed routes are aligned, with or without an interest to the public at large.
