The county council has launched a consultation on its Green Access Strategy - a legal requirement under the Rights of Way Act of 2000. This aims to improve access for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and those with mobility problems - and will produce a plan running until 2026.

The consultation runs until September 20. People can comment by using its dedicated website which also has more details about the consultation and what might happen in the county.

Deputy council leader Mary Evans, who is responsible for transport, said: "The Green Access Strategy represents our commitment as a council to make the very most of the rights of way network and to provide our residents, our business community and our visitors an array of different and innovative opportunities to use, enjoy and benefit from green access."
