Report a Path Problem

Kent Area covers the whole of Kent and Medway plus the London boroughs of Bexley and Bromley.


You can find information on how to report a problem in Kent here.  You have to register to report a problem but the effort is worthwhile as you will then be able to track the problems you have reported.  It is important that all problems are reported so that the rights of way team at Kent County Council has a comprehensive picture of the state of the county's footpaths.  The more people report a problem, the more likely it is to get fixed.

If at all possible please report problems in Kent on-line as described in the previous paragraph.  This minimises administration for the rights of way team, leaving them with more time to spend on fixing problems.  The reporting tool also makes it easier to report the precise location of the problem without using grid references and allows you to upload photographs.

If using the on-line reporting tool is impossible for you then the following alternatives are available:

  • By Phone: 03000 417171
  • By Post: Public Rights of Way & Access Service, Kent County Council, The Granary, Penstock Hall Farm, Canterbury Road, East Brabourne, Ashford, TN25 5LL

When reporting a fault please be prepared to give the following information:

  • Your name, contact information and that you are a Rambler
  • Location of the problem, e.g. OS map grid reference, path number or a general description of the area concerned
  • Nature of the problem and the date that you saw it


You can find information on how to report a problem in Medway here.


If possible log any problems at but otherwise send an email to


There is a dedicated email address for reporting problems:  Additionally Bexley's definitive maps are available here so that you can check the route of the borough's public rights of way more reliably than from the Ordnance Survey maps which are often out of date.
