New technology means you can now let your fingers do the walking as the County Council launches a brand new online tool to report damage and obstructions on Buckinghamshire’s 2,000 miles of public footpaths, bridleways and byways.
And a few taps on your smartphone or computer is all it takes to log a problem on the new CAMs (Countryside Access Management) system. Walkers and horse riders can report items like broken stiles, overgrown vegetation or fallen trees, damaged bridges or path surfaces or even damaged or missing signposts and waymarks. Reports received can then be prioritised and dealt with as quickly as possible.
Not only will the system provide feedback on progress to the customer, it will also say if the problem has already been reported. The system also allows volunteers to sign up to help deal with reported problems.
The new reporting tool is available by clicking on: https://www.buckscc.gov.uk/services/environment/public-rights-of-way/report-a-rights-of-way-issue/ or visit www.buckscc.gov.uk and search ‘rights of way’. To report an issue, you will need to log in and then select the ‘Report an issue’ menu item. If it is your first time, you will need to register.
