Proposed changes to public footpaths or upgrade to bridleways in Derbyshire

Since mid-2018 Peak District MTB has become a consultee on proposed changes to public footpaths or upgrade to bridleways in Derbyshire. Most of the changes have been amendments to the routings of public footpaths around people’s properties.

Derbyshire County Council have asked us to comment on three proposed upgrades of public footpaths to bridleways in the south of the White Peak area around the parishes of Tissington and Lea Hall, Eaton and Alsop, Newton Grange. Peak District MTB has responded to Derbyshire County Council by supporting all three applications.

The proposals are:

  • Claim to add a Bridleway from Liffs Road to Public Footpath No.13 and to Upgrade Public Footpath No.13 to a Bridleway – Parish of Eaton and Alsop.
    This proposal with create a bridleway from the Alsop En Le Dale area to the River Dove and will connect to a Bridleway on the Staffordshire side of the Dove.

  • Claim to add a Bridleway and upgrade Public Footpath Nos.17 (part) and 21 (part) to Bridleways – Parish of Tissington and Lea Hall.
    This proposal will create a bridleway from the A515 to Gag Lane.

  • Claim to add a Bridleway from Dam Lane to A515 via Alsop Station – Parish of Eaton and Alsop Newton Grange.

These applications were made anything up to 12 months ago, and no decision has been made, so for the time being these are all footpaths until a final decision has been made by DCC and a Definitive Map Modification Order has been made. Hopefully the work and support we are providing in relation to the Project 2026 will see more of these consultations.
