Find a Consultant
If you are involved in a dispute over a right of way or need advice which your council cannot give you, you may need a consultant specialising in rights of way.
IPROW has members who undertake consultancy work relating to various aspects of rights of way and public access management.
The Institute makes no direct recommendation or endorsement of their work although membership of the organisation does require demonstration of a recognised level of professional expertise and adherence to a code of conduct.
Before engaging a consultant, you may wish to satisfy yourself that the person or organisation can meet your requirements, especially in relation to professional indemnity and public liability insurance where appropriate.
The registered businesses have at least one IPROW member actively engaged in rights of way work.
