Hampshire County Council are currently reviewing the Hampshire Countryside Access Plan (CAP) and consulting stakeholders for their views on what the revised CAP should contain and how it might be structured. We are also seeking views on the extent to which the access network meets the needs of the public. The Hampshire Countryside Access Plan is the statutory Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP), as required by the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.
If you are not already familiar with the CAP, it can be downloaded from www3.hants.gov.uk/countryside/access-plans.htm
A shorter survey for individual members of the public is also open for responses. The results from both surveys will be available later this year on the countryside access web pages http://www.hants.gov.uk/row

The CAP was first published in 2008. The CAP addresses the provision of rights of way, access land, permissive paths and other public open space (the “access network”) primarily for recreation and enjoyment, but also for utility purposes (getting from A to B). We would like to know what you think about the extent and/or quality of the access network provision in Hampshire, and whether the needs for that provision have changed since 2008.
