Footpaths

Our Footpaths Officer liaises with local authorities about all problems with footpaths, and coordinates responses to requests for path diversions and deletions.

If you experience problems with blocked or dangerous paths, broken stiles etc. please use the procedure set out below. If you want help in reporting an issue, you can consult our Footpaths Officer.

  • Maintenance issues, such as broken or missing stiles, missing signposts, obstacles such as fallen trees, overgrown paths or drainage problems, should be reported to the maintenance team.

What information should I provide when I report a problem?

  • Your name 
  • Your email address 
  • Details of the issue encountered. A photograph would be useful
  • A 6 figure Grid Reference. How to read a grid reference
  • The Path Reference number.

Footpath reference numbers can be obtained from the map on: http://www.carmarthenshire.gov.wales/home/council-services/public-rights-of-way/my-nearest-public-rights-of-way/#

Make sure you obtain an issue number and send this to our Footpaths Officer along with a copy of the original report, for future reference.

The Ramblers Association now offers an app to report footpath problems, making it easy to do this as you walk.  See details on their website and you can download the app on Android or Apple.  There's also an online version to use once you get home.
