Temporary closures

As of the 1st July 2021, temporary closures of Public Rights of Way are now shown on our online map which can be found here. Please make sure you have the 'PROW Temporary Closure' layer selected on the left hand side otherwise the closures won't appear on the map.

Temporary closure orders authorise the closure of paths for up to six months. If works exceed six months, it is necessary to apply to the Secretary of State for an extension of the order. Generally, applicants must pay a fee and give the county council at least 12 weeks notice. However emergency closures will occasionally be used where unforeseen problems occur. If you need to apply for a closure please contact PROWTempclosures@gloucestershire.gov.uk If the closure is urgent, please contact 08000 514514


If you have a question about closed paths or want to request the notice and plan for a specific closure please email PROWTempclosures@gloucestershire.gov.uk
