The Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 places a duty on each highway authority to publish a Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP) for their area.
The ROWIP is the prime means by which local authorities identify, prioritise and plan for improvements to their local rights of way network. The Plan aims to guide the strategic development of the public rights of way network with improvements to meet the current and future needs of walkers, cyclists, horse riders and disabled people.
The legislation provides for the highway authority to work jointly with a National Park Authority where parts of a local authority area fall within a National Park.
ROWIPs for Pembrokeshire are prepared jointly by the National Park Authority and Pembrokeshire County Council.
