Current Status Accepted

Public Rights of Way - The County Councils ROWIP is not evidenced. The current ROWIP should be referenced as it is a statutory policy document for PRoW for the protection and enhancement of PRoW.

Paragraph 9.5 The reference to the PRoW is welcomed and supported by KCC.

Paragraph 9.6
Recent studies have shown there is a correlation between areas of high deprivation that have poor access to open spaces and green infrastructure. This
issue can be addressed by supporting the creation of new open spaces in areas of high deprivation. It is imperative that open spaces are easily accessible
by walking, cycling or use of public transport, to avoid a dependency on private vehicle use.
