Bradford Council and members of the Bradford Local Access Forum attended a Parish Councils’ Liaison meeting in January, to draw their attention to the need to make sure all their public paths are properly recorded by 1st January 2026.

With only 9 years to left, there are areas in district (the old Borough of Bradford and part of Keighley) without a Definitive Map. There is also a large backlog of apparent anomalies.

The South Pennine Packhorse Trails Trust gave a presentation on how historical research can help to achieve this. Although the Council is currently preparing its own report on how they plan to meet the deadline, we believe that a systematic approach is needed and individual Parish Councils and communities can help with this task by checking their own path network against the historical documents.
