We currently have a footpath in front of our house and then a bank that leads to the Benson Brook Stream. I need to understand who owns the footpath? I assume it’s the council and if so I need someone to come and have a look as they footpath isn’t flat and is becoming dangerous near the bank.

Thank you for your report. I have checked the Highway maps and the footway section from number 55 to 61 is not deemed to be part of the publicly maintained highway by Oxfordshire County Council in our capacity as local highway authority. As we do not keep records of third party land ownership I can only suggest contacting Land Registry (https://www.gov.uk/ government/ organisations/ land-registry) who should be better able to help/advise you as to ownership. This report is now closed.
