(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations re-enact the Town and Country Planning (Public Path Orders) Regulations 1983 (“the 1983 Regulations”) with minor and drafting amendments. They prescribe requirements for orders made by local planning authorities under section 257(1) or 258 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
Orders under section 257 authorise the stopping up or diversion of footpaths or bridleways to enable development to be carried out in accordance with planning permission or by a government department. Orders made by local planning authorities under section 258(1) of the Act extinguish public rights of way over footpaths or bridleways over land held by such local authorities for planning purposes.
Regulation 2 and Schedule 1 prescribe the form of order and require that it must contain a map on a specified scale.
Regulation 3 with Schedule 2 prescribe forms of notice of orders and with Schedule 3 prescribe additional persons on whom notice of the making and confirmation of orders must be served.
Regulation 4 contains provisions governing the procedure for orders.
Regulation 5 revokes the 1983 Regulations.
