HC Deb 17 June 1975 vol 893 c407W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he proposes to make available a definitive footpath map for North Bedfordshire.

Mr. Oakes

All the necessary information in respect of the outstanding appeals has now been obtained and decisions will be issued shortly. The decisions will then be notified to the appellant and to the surveying authority, Bedfordshire County Council, which can then proceed to publish the provisional map. Owners and occupiers of land affected may then challenge the inclusion of paths on the map by application to the Crown court. When any such cases have been resolved the definitive map will be published.
