Section 31(6) statement of landowner deposits

Landowners can protect their land from additional public rights of way coming into existence through use by the public for 20 years.

Under Section 31(6) of the Highways Act 1980 a landowner can apply and submit a map and statement to record from that date forth that any ways, which are not already recorded on the Definitive Map and Statement, cannot be claimed as public rights of way, unless they have been used for 20 years prior to the application date.

Refer to this guidance before submitting your application.
