Kent County Council has received an application, and subsequently made an Order, to amend the legal record of Public Rights of Way, known as the Definitive Map, by recording a Public Footpath running between Public Footpath CW48 and Sydney Road at Whitstable.

Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, the County Council may make an Order to modify the Definitive Map where it is considered that a public right of way which is not shown on the map is reasonably alleged to subsist.

Further details about the application (including how to respond) and a plan showing the proposal can be found by viewing the documents in the section below.

The deadline for responses is 12 April 2021.
