Definitive Map 2026 “cut off date” for historic paths – DEFRA Update

Stakeholder Working Group

Update from DEFRA, 17 May 2022

In February we communicated our decision to repeal the 2026 cut-off date, and to proceed with the right to apply and cost recovery statutory instruments.

In addition, we can now also confirm that we are in a position to proceed with the remaining statutory instruments which will mean that we can implement the full package of reforms, not related to the cut-off date, and bring into force the improvements to rights of way processes originally envisaged under the Deregulation Act 2015.
