Foothpath and Snow Warden Scheme

Faringdon Town Council is opening two new volunteer schemes:

The Footpath warden and the Snow warden scheme.

The Footpath scheme aims at ensuring that our public paths are kept open and accessible.

The Snow Warden Scheme will contribute to delivering winter maintenance support to the community of Faringdon.

Oxfordshire County Council’s Countryside Access Team manages the rural public rights of way network (footpaths and bridleways).

To see the legally record route of all public rights of way in the county visit the OCC’s online Countryside Access Map (https://publicrightsofway.oxfordshire.gov.uk/standardmap.aspx).

As well as showing where the paths are, it also gives the ability to report any issues directly to the Countryside Access Team, for example overgrowth, damaged bridge or missing signage.

The Countryside Code has been refreshed by Natural England https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-countryside-code/the-countryside-code-advice-for-countryside-visitors).

If you find any issues about footpaths in the area you can also write to office@faringdontowncouncil.gov.uk or Marzia@faringdontowncouncil.gov.uk
