Rights of Way

Extinguishments

A right of way can be extinguished only if

  • it is not needed for use by the public and in all the circumstances, it is expedient to close it.

Extinguishment orders are made very infrequently. If you are considering applying for an order we recommend that you first speak with one of our network development officers tel 01962 846891. District Councils also have the power to make extinguishment orders.
