In the years leading up to 2026, more volunteers will be needed to put together applications to save lost rights of way. This volunteering will involve interpreting and presenting historical evidence to make a case that a particular lost right of way was historically considered a public right of way. If you sign up for this role we will give you guidance, resources and training that will help you to find, understand and present the historical data.
You will be able to sign up for this role later in 2021, when we will begin introducing more guidance and resources to support you in researching and presenting applications for lost rights of way to be added to definitive maps. If you would like to be updated when this role is live, sign up to our updates here.
