Rights of way, core paths and footpaths

The Development Planning and Regeneration team deal with path stopping up and diversion orders, liaising with our colleagues at East Ayrshire Leisure Trust.

  • You can find out if a path is a Right of Way using our Online Mapping.
  • You can find out if a path is a core path by looking at the Core Path Plan on East Ayrshire Leisure's website.
