THE network of paths which links communities and places across Moray is being updated.
The local authority is contacting hundreds of known users of the existing core paths to seek their views on suggested changes, but the consultation is open to everyone.
A number of new paths have been created since the plan was last reviewed in 2011 and mapping errors have been corrected. Under the latest proposals, 73 new core paths could be included in the plan, while amendments are tabled to 36 existing paths. The authority and the Moray Local Outdoor Access Forum have worked on compiling the changes in order to represent the interests of multiple outdoor groups.
The proposals, which are now out for consultation, are available to view online or in hard copy at libraries and access points and at a series of planning exhibitions being held across Moray until the end of March.
They will be held at: The Fochabers Institute on February 6 from 2-8pm; Lossiemouth Town Hall on February 15 from 2-8pm; Dufftown’s Mortlach Hall on February 21 from 2-8pm; Forres Town Hall on March 8 from 2-8pm; Keith’s Longmore Hall on March 13 from 2-8pm; and St Giles Church in Elgin on March 17 from 9.30am to 4pm.
