Register of Definitive Map Modification Order Applications

We are required to keep a Definitive Map Modification Order (DMMO) register under section 53B of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 as amended.

The DMMO register lists all applications made to modify the Definitive Map.

We are required by law to publish the documents in the table below but they do not meet accessibility requirements. The information in the table summarises the key information from the application form document.

Applications are registered on the date that we receive an application which complies with paragraph 1 of Schedule 14 to the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (application accompanied by a map and copies of evidence in support). Applications can be submitted prior to the serving of notice of the application on the landowners and occupiers (paragraph 2 of Schedule 14 to the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981). However, we would not commence investigating an application, until this element has been complied with. 'Certificate served' notation in the register indicated this process has been complied with.

Since 2020 the number of DMMOs that have been submitted has increased significantly, due to their complexity, each application can take between 2 and 5 years to resolve and the applications will generally be allocated to case officers in the order that they are received in when the case officers have sufficient capacity

Below is a list of applications which have been allocated to a case officer and are at various stages of determination.

Applications awaiting investigation

Below is the list of applications which have not yet been assigned to a case officer and are not yet being investigated. Applications will be processed in the order below. Applications are investigated in date order of receipt. Occasionally we may have to take an application out of sequence, for example, if we receive a direction from the Planning Inspectorate or due to significant extenuating circumstances such as the granting of planning consent which would endanger the continued physical existence of the claimed route.
