Outdoor Partnerships

Advice on and management of public rights of way, country parks and countryside heritage sites in Shropshire’s Great Outdoors.

We maintain and develop countryside access, conserve and enhance important wildlife and heritage sites and promote enjoyment of the outdoors. Here you can find advice on legal orders, planning applications, landowner and user responsibilities and other statutory duties associated with countryside access and answers to your queries about council owned parks and sites.

If you are looking for inspiration to get out and about or would like to volunteer with us, visit the Shropshire’s Great Outdoors website.
