Public Rights of Way (PROW)​

PROW maps

The plans represent approximate routes of the public rights of way within the Borough. It reflects the working copy of the definitive plan which is, to the best of our knowledge, correct. 

Any pending applications to record, stop up, divert, alter or create a public right of way will be advertised on this page.



Under the Wildlife And Countryside Act 1981, we are required to keep a public register of all outstanding Definitive Map Modification Order (DMMO) applications.

Registers will be updated on a regular basis. The application and map for each case are scanned into a case file as Adobe PDF documents. Applications are published in paper format, and electronically on the website. Case files are cross-referenced by a unique number to the file reference column in the registers (and path number).

Information requests about any of these applications should be addressed to Halton Borough Council, or you can contact us

A public right of way (PRoW) is a way over which the public have a right to pass and repass. Rights of way can be found in towns, villages and the countryside. Some paths may be surfaced although most are tracks across countryside owned by landowners.

Liverpool City Region Green Sustainable Travel Corridors Project

The Liverpool City Region Green Sustainable Travel Corridors Project (also called LCR SUD) is a £17.3m project (of which £8.65m is from ERDF) until June 2023 and part of a Liverpool City Region-wide initiative to encourage more cycling and walking.

The scheme aims to deliver a series of cycling and walking upgrades on key corridors, linking housing sites in the Region with employment and training opportunities, to make up the LCR Strategic Cycling and Walking Network.

It aims to introduce clearly defined, direct cycleways to utilise off-road, segregated routes in order to encourage increased uptake in cycling and walking in the City Region. It is providing enhancement of green infrastructure, such as the planting of street trees and green walls and significant areas of biodiversity sites will be upgraded as part of the package of measures, including new areas of woodland and wildflower planting.

The scheme is being delivered by a consortium of partners across the Liverpool City Region:

European Regional Development Fund
