Maintaining the footpath network in St Ives, Lelant, Carbis Bay and Halsetown
Cornwall Council is responsible for the network of public footpaths across the parish, but the Town Council carries out footpath maintenance work under a partnership arrangement on a number of paths, both parish paths and stretches of the SW coastal path. This work is done in-house by Town Council staff.
To report a footpath that is overgrown or needs maintenance refer to the linked footpath map, identifying the specific path number and use the report it button.
Paths are cut between one and three times a year in the growing season.
St Ives Town Council are committed to maintaining the network around the parish to promote walking and to protect our important landscapes including the spectacular coast path, fields and wooded areas. We believe footpaths are one of our most valuable assets.
The most popular walks are those between St Ives and Zennor, and the stretch of coast path between St Ives, Carbis Bay and Lelant.
You can contact St Ives Town Council to ask about the footpaths in the area or to report a problem
