The Definitive Map is the legal record of all known public rights of way in Cambridgeshire. It is accompanied by the Definitive Statement, which describes the route, position and width where defined of each right of way, as well as any limitations.
The Definitive Map and Statement may be changed using three principal pieces of legislation:
- Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981
- Highways Act 1980
- Town and Country Planning Act 1990
