Abstract
The Core Paths aim to satisfy the basic needs of local people and visitors for general access and recreation. They comprise a mixture of existing and some new paths. The Core Paths cater for all types of users - walkers, cyclists, horse riders, people with disabilities, and are a key part of outdoor access provision. The Fife Core Path Network is shown as lines, covering the whole of Fife, on the approved Core Path Plan as defined by a public consultation and public inquiry, as mandated by the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 that placesm,on the local authority, the duty to draw up a plan for a system of paths ('core paths') sufficient for the purpose of giving the public reasonable access throughout their area'. These 'core paths' systems will be available for recreation and everyday journeys by local people and visitors, providing opportunities for walking, cycling, riding and other activities for all ages and abilities.
