Public Sector Information Holder: Planning Inspectorate
Information Asset: Decisions on rights of way orders for Wales
Since early 2007 the Planning Inspectorate has published on its website copies of decisions on rights of way orders in England. Previously it had circulated paper copies to various organisations. The website provides access for all, but covers only the decisions for orders made by authorities in England. The legal procedures are exactly the same in Wales, so why not extend the coverage to include Welsh orders?
My ideal solution
The existing coverage (at http://www.planning-inspectorate.gov.uk/pins/row_order_advertising/map.htm) to be extended to cover orders made by local authorities in Wales and submitted to the Planning Inspectorate.
What I would do
I, and other peole involved in rights of way work, would read the decisions, and refer to them, as I do at present for those in England.
