Rights of Way

Sedgemoor District Council can undertake the administration of diversions for Rights of Way under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

When there is a conflict between the location of a Right of Way and a consented planning application, we will endeavour to obtain a diversion for the applicant if it is in the public interest to do so.

A new online mapping system to help people find their way around Somerset's extensive rights of way network has been launched by Somerset County Council.   Explore Somerset is now available at Somerset County Council Rights of Way interactive mapping and allows users to plan their route across all 9,000 public rights of way in Somerset.
