The register of definitive map modification order applications is a list of all outstanding claims for alterations to the council's legal record of public rights of way. Claims can be made by members of the public, or by interest groups, such as the Ramblers Association.
A claim will involve the addition of a new right of way or a change to the public rights over an existing route. The register will be updated to allow the processing of individual applications to be monitored as they pass through the relevant legal stages. Once an application is concluded it will be removed from the register.
