Notes: 

This data request has been included in the work ODUG is undertaking on third party licences and Rights of Way. For further information, please see http://data.gov.uk/open-data-user-group-benefits-cases-for-release-of-data

Data request description: 
This information shows the location, path number, parish, etc.
Reason: 
The data is published but not in a format I can download and use (e.g. only displayed onscreen or only downloadable as a PDF rather than CVS)
Durham County Council have drawn all of the PRoW digitally and made it available as a GIS layer on their website, but it is incredibly slow and very hard to use.
Suggested use: 
Personal Use
Use the data to create walks within County Durham and display the information in online maps. The routes and the information would be free.
Benefits overview: 
It would promote walking in the County, which would promote tourism and help people to get out walking in areas they didn't know about.
