You can report any problems (or good experiences!) that you encounter while out and about on the bridleways in MSABG’s area.
The County Councils are responsible for getting your problem fixed if it is on a statutory bridleway and the relevant organisation or owner is responsible if it is a permissive path. Members can 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 a problem here on MSABG’s website, ensures that there is a permanent record of your issue which can be tracked. This could also help towards finding a solution. 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!
