Public Footpaths and Rights of Way
Exminster Parish Council participates in the Parish Partnership Scheme with Devon County Council to look after the local network of Public Rights of Way.
Public Rights of Way are public highways: the surface 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 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 Devon County Council footpath Liaison Officer.
There is a map of local footpaths in the Victory Hall window by the path to Coffee on the Corner. There are no bridleways in the parish.
The Tree Warden welcomes reports on the condition of trees in the Parish.
