Section 21: Delineation by agreement of paths in land over which access rights are exercisable
91.This section makes provision for a local authority to enter into an agreement for the delineation and maintenance (and, if necessary, creation) of a path over land in respect of which access rights are exercisable. Such an agreement will be on the terms and conditions agreed between the local authority and the person with whom they enter into the agreement. Those terms and conditions may, amongst other things, provide for the making of payments. Section 17(2) provides that a path which is delineated in such an agreement may form part of the local authority’s core paths plan.
