Bridleway Reports

You can report any problems (or good experiences!!!) that you encounter while out and about on the bridleways in MSABG’s area.

The County Council is responsible for getting your problem fixed if it is on a statutory bridleway and the relevant organisation/owner is responsible if it is a permissive path. You may find that the Councils’ interactive maps listed on our Maps, Routes and Rides page can help you locate the bridleway that you want to report.

Logging the problem here on MSABG’s website, ensures that there is a permanent record of your problem and its progress towards being fixed can be tracked.  Other people will be able to see the list and can often offer more information and help.

1. Log your problem on MSABG’s website by Submitting a Bridleway Report
You will be prompted for information but if you are not sure of anything just do your best! Then use the back-arrows to get back to this page and…

2. Report your problem to the relevant authority 

If the bridleway is in West Sussex report it at West Sussex County Council if in East Sussex its  East Sussex County Council and if within Brighton & Hove area use the report form at Brighton and Hove City Council

Rights of Way Officers are busy people but if you have not had a reply after one or two weeks then follow up. Get some idea of when your problem might be attended to and follow up again! Be tenacious and don’t lose heart. Some issues do take a long time to be resolved. Please remember to let us know how things are going, especially when a problem that you have reported is fixed. If you need any help in getting your problem sorted out then contact us. MSABG’s members and committee have a good deal of experience under their belts!
