1 The definitive map MODIFYING THE DEFINITIVE MAP RIGHTS OF WAY A definitive map is a legal record of the public s rights of way in one of three categories: footpath, bridleway or byway open to all traffic (sometimes referred to as a byway or BOAT). A footpath is a right of way on foot A bridleway is a right of way on foot, on horseback and leading a horse A byway open to all APPLICATION traffic is a right of way on foot, on horseback and in or on vehicles, including more vehicles and pedal cycles. In addition, by virtue of section 30 of the Countryside Act 1968, pedal cyclists may also use bridleways. A definitive statement DEFINITIVE MAP MODIFICATION ORDER INFORMATION AND FORMS A map is accompanied by a definitive statement which describes the location of each right of way and may in some cases define the width.

3 MODIFICATION ORDERS NOTES AND GUIDANCE The definitive map A definitive map is a legal record of the public s rights of way in one of four categories: footpath, bridleway, restricted byway or byway open to all traffic. A footpath is a right of way on foot A bridleway is a right of way on foot, on horseback and leading a horse (in addition, by virtue of section 30 of the Countryside Act 1968, pedal cyclists may also use bridleways) A byway open to all traffic is a right of way on foot, on horseback and in or on vehicles, including motor vehicles, motorbikes, and pedal cycles A restricted byway is the same, but with no rights for mechanically propelled vehicles A definitive statement A map is accompanied by a definitive statement which describes the location of each right of way and may in some cases define the width. The relevant date Both the definitive map and statement have a relevant date. The evidence provided by these records of the existence of public rights of way is evidence that they existed at that date. The Definitive Map for the County of Cumbria The definitive map and statement covering the whole county of Cumbria has a relevant date of 1 January These records revised earlier maps from the relevant parts of the former counties of Cumberland, Westmorland, Lancashire and the West Riding of Yorkshire. These original definitive maps each had relevant dates in the 1950s and were the first central records to be made of public rights of way. Within the Lake District National Park By law, Cumbria County Council has a duty to keep the definitive map and statement up to date. However, within the Lake District National Park, the National Park Authority is now responsible for holding the records of definitive rights of way on behalf of the County Council and for making any changes to it.
4 What if the definitive map is wrong or incomplete? Any member of the public may make an application to modify the definitive map if they believe it to be incorrect. Such an application would have to be accompanied by the relevant evidence on which the argument is being based. We will then deal with the matter and make an assessment, on the balance of probabilities, as to the correct status of the route(s). Whatever decision we make can be appealed against, and the matter would then ultimately be resolved by the Secretary of State. The process can be lengthy. Such evidence would normally consist of a mixture of usage and documentary although strong cases can be built with only one type of evidence. Usage is basically have people used the path as if it were a right of way of a particular status? If they have done so for 20 years or more, and there has been no, or little, counter evidence to show that the landowners have made it clear that they did not intend the way to become a footpath then this is likely to result in a footpath modification order. Documents include old maps, such as tithe maps, enclosure awards and estate plans which help. Unfortunately, although this may seem simple, the legislation concerning the establishment of public rights of way is one of the most complex areas of English Law, with thousands of cases constantly setting precedents. It is an area of law hotly contested right up to the Court of Appeal. So, what might seem, at the outset, a straightforward black and white issue, generally gets greyer fairly quickly. What modifications can be made to the map? Public rights may exist over a way not shown on the map at all, or additional rights may exist over a way shown on the definitive map, even though they are not recorded there. Similarly, a right of way may have been included on the map in error or with the wrong status, perhaps incorrectly being recorded as a bridleway when it was only a footpath. The procedures set out in the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 allow an authority to make definitive map modification orders to amend the map so as to correct any error or omissions but only where there is new evidence to support the claim. The changes that can be made are: DELETION of a public right of way ADDITION of a public right of way UPGRADING of a footpath or bridleway DOWNGRADING of a bridleway or byway VARIATION OF THE DEFINITIVE STATEMENT or other particulars
5 Gathering evidence to support your claim - The evidence needed to prove your case will be one, or both, of the following: 1. Documentary evidence such as old maps, estate documents, property deeds, tithe maps or enclosure awards often show public rights of way although these are not necessarily conclusive. The local record office may be able to offer advice on what documents are available which cover your area. Old photographs and guidebooks can also be useful. 2. Statements from people who have used the route (user evidence) in question are probably the most useful evidence. FORM E is available for this purpose although any written statement from an individual could be helpful. It is important to advise people who complete statement forms that they may be asked to give evidence in person at a public inquiry if the claim is challenged, and that their forms will become public documents. As many forms as possible should be submitted, with a marked map attached to each form, signed by the witness, indicating the exact route used. Applying for a modification order - To apply for a modification of the definitive map you must do four things: Maps Identify on a map the route of the right of way in question (see below) Complete an application form (FORM A) giving details of your claim and attach copies of your supporting evidence (using FORM G for guidance). Notify all the landowner(s) and occupier(s) affected by your claim that you are applying for a modification order, using FORM B (and possibly FORM F). Complete FORM C to certify to us that you have notified the relevant people. Clearly mark on a map the route of the path or way which is the subject of your claim. By law, this should not be less than 1:25,000 (2½ inches to 1 mile) but 1:10,000 or 1:2,500 is preferable to avoid any confusion. It is recommended that you use an Ordnance Survey map, available from normal retail outlets and OS agents. The Definitive Map may be inspected free of charge at the National Park Office. Copies may be supplied subject to the current scale of charges. Serving Notice on Landowners You must serve notice of your application on every one of the landowners and occupiers affected through one of the methods suggested on the reverse of FORM B. Failure to do so will invalidate the application. You need to identify all the owners and occupiers of all land to which the application relates (this includes anyone that has land next to it, if it is a bounded lonning, and anyone who may have access along it). You can find much relevant information from the Land Registry, or by simply asking around the locality.
6 If you cannot trace the landowner or occupier, you should complete FORM D giving full details of the steps you have taken in doing so. The Authority may (or may direct you to) affix a notice in some conspicuous place(s) or to some conspicuous object(s) on the land, addressed to the owner or occupier. Landowners If the landowner(s) themselves can provide relevant evidence, please ask them to complete FORM F. Or send this to them with FORM B. The application form should then be forwarded to the Park Management Team, The Lake District National Park Authority, Murley Moss, Oxenholme Road, Kendal, Cumbria, LA9 7RL. Before you apply We suggest that you phone us on to discuss your application (or by on It may help you to avoid some pitfalls, and we can check our records to make sure that it hasn t already got some public rights, or already been assessed.

The form of Notice, defined by the regulations, is set out in the Authority's FORM B, which should be addressed and sent to every owner and occupier of land over which the alleged way runs. 3. It is the duty of the applicant to investigate the ownership and occupation of the land so that the necessary Notice may be served. 4. Where it proves impossible for the applicant to discover the owner and occupier, if after reasonable enquiries have been made, the Authority is satisfied that it is not practicable to ascertain the name and address of all the owners or occupiers, the Authority may direct that the Notice may be served by addressing it to the owner or occupier of the land [describing it] and by affixing it to some conspicuous object or objects at either end of the route concerned. 5.

21 PUBLIC RIGHTS OF WAY FORM E - USER EVIDENCE FORM AND STATUTORY DECLARATION FORM GUIDANCE NOTES Wildlife and Countryside Act FORM E is referred to as a User Evidence form. It should be completed by people who have used the route being claimed. FORM E (Stat) is very similar, except that it is called a Statutory Declaration and will need to be witnessed by either a Commissioner for Oaths, Solicitor or Magistrate (contact the National Park authority if you need a copy). Inspectors at Public Inquiries will generally place greater weight on Statutory Declarations than on unsworn User Evidence forms. Both forms should be personally completed by the witness. 2. All questions must be answered. 3. The usual method of providing evidence for the addition or upgrading of a claimed way, is for witnesses to testify their use to help comprise 20 or more years of uninterrupted use of the way prior to the date that public right was brought into question, believing that they had the right to do so, pursuant to Section 31 of the Highways Act 1980, which states:- (1) "Where a way over any land, other than a way of such a character that use of it by the public could not give rise at common law to any presumption of dedication, has been actually enjoyed by the public as a right and without interruption for a full a period of 20 years, the way is to be deemed to have been dedicated as a highway unless there is sufficient evidence that there was no intention during that period to dedicate it. (2) The period of 20 years referred to in sub-sub-section (1) above is to be calculated retrospectively from the date when the right of the public to use the way is brought into question, whether by notice or otherwise". 4. It is important that the way is shown to follow a defined route and not be an area over which the public have wandered at large. 5. The witness may be personally interviewed in connection with the information given in the forms. 6. The details contained in forms may be used as evidence in future proceedings, and the witness should be prepared to support the information by being willing to attend to give verbal evidence read from a prepared statement, at a later date, at any local Public Inquiry which may be arranged. 7. A landowner can successfully refute a claim for the addition of a way if he/she can prove that either the way was used with his/her express permission only, or that he/she has prevented access to the way, or that he/she has erected notices to counter any suggestion that there had been intention to dedicate the way as a public right of way. 8. A map clearly showing the route of the alleged way should be attached to the forms. The map should preferably be at a scale of 1:2,500 or 1:10,000 and should be signed by the witness to confirm that it has been seen and understood. PLEASE ATTACH A SEPARATE SHEET WITH ANY OTHER INFORMATION WHICH YOU CONSIDER WOULD BE HELPFUL IN REACHING A DECISION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT A MODIFICATION ORDER SHOULD MADE
