Countryside and Rights of Way Bill
Lord Bridges (Crossbench)
I support the amendment. Like my noble friend Lord Northbourne, I believe in the need to extend the public rights of way network and in allowing citizens to express their view on what should be done. It is for the council to decide what to do with the application. To allow a citizen the right to suggest that a new right of way should be created seems to be democratic and the correct thing to do. I hope that the amendment will be accepted.
