Footpath Maintenance

Footpath Maintenance
Footpath network in St Ives, Lelant, Carbis Bay and Halsetown

Whilst Cornwall Council is responsible for the network of public footpaths across the parish, the town council carries out footpath maintenance work under a partnership arrangement on a number of paths but not the entirety of the network.

To report a footpath that is overgrown or needs maintenance refer to Cornwall Council’s footpath map, identifying the specific path number.

In some locations one cut a year will be sufficient, in others there will be two or three cuts.

St Ives Town Council aims to enable the footpath network around the parish to be a pleasant experience for all who use it. With a mix of landscapes to walk through, including the spectacular coast path, fields and wooded areas, the footpaths are an asset to the area.

The most popular walks are those between St Ives and Zennor, and the stretch of coast path between St Ives, Carbis Bay and Lelant.
