Footpath Warden

Exminster Parish Council participates in the Parish Partnership Scheme with Devon County Council to look after the local network of Public Rights of Way.

What is the definition of a public right of way? It’s a route or way, usually on private land, which the public has a legal right to use. Public rights of way are public highways: the surface of the public right of way belongs to the local highway authority while the subsoil is the property of the landowner.

The Parish Paths Partnerships Scheme is an initiative to ensure that the entire rights of way network is legally defined, properly maintained and well publicised. It has the support of the National Association of Local Councils and is Devon County Council funded. The County Council was one of the first fifteen Highway Authorities to participate in this scheme, which encourages community involvement and enjoyment of public rights of way. Devon County Council is working in partnership with Parish/Town Councils, landowners and local voluntary groups. The main aim is to improve the condition of the local rights of way and keep them open and used properly.

The Parish Council appoints a volunteer Footpath Warden to inspect and report on the condition of the footpaths and arrange any work in conjunction with the D.C.C. footpath Liaison Officer.

Public Footpaths are for people on foot only. Not for cyclists (even those pushing their bikes) or for people riding or leading a horse. Pushchairs and wheelchairs may be used. Horse riding and cycling on a public footpath are only allowed with the landowner’s express permission.

There is a map of the footpaths in the Victory Hall window by the path to Coffee on the Corner and a copy can be downloaded below. There are no bridleways in the parish.
