Repeal of the 2026 cut-off
Posted on 4th March 2023 at 12:15
Changes to the law under the CROW Act 2000 meant that on 1 January 2026, public rights over thousands of routes would have been extinguished if they were not yet formally recorded on the definitive map, the legal record of rights of way. In February 2022 the Government announced that the cut-off date would be repealed, but it has not yet done so. Please write to your MP to encourage them to support the repeal legislation.
