Footpaths and Public Rights of Way

Derbyshire County Council maintain public footpaths and rights of way across Derbyshire and will deal with problems including obstructions, illegal signage and unauthorised usage.

As a District Council, our role is to deal with application for diversion (.pdf | 365kb) and application for extinguishment (.pdf | 300kb) in relation to the Town and Country Planning Act. Both NEDDC and DCC are able to deal with diversions and extinguishments under the Highways Act.

We also have guidance for diversions (.pdf | 370kb) and extinguishment (.pdf | 370kb) applications.
