Could you please provide information unmetalled roads with vehicular access, such as ORPAs, White Roads and UCRs.
If available, could you please provide the information as KML, Shape or CSV format with parish name, parish number, unique track reference / usrn number and grid coordinates including waypoints for the tracks?
Dear Mr Keeling,
Thank you for your enquiry, which has been forwarded to the appropriate
officers for a response. The usual timescale for a response is twenty
working days, that is by or on 9 June 2017.
If for any reason the Council needs to extend this timescale you will be
notified in accordance with the relevant legislation.
Please note that in 2012 the County Council adopted a position in
principle that FoI and EIR requests to West Sussex County Council and the
Council's responses may be published on the Council's website in a
suitably anonymised form. This is in addition to the individual response
to the requestor, and in line with the Council's commitment to
transparency and open data.

Dear Mr Keeling
I refer to your request dated 10^th May 2017, which has been dealt with
under the Freedom of Information Act.
Your request related to Unmetalled Roads with vehicular access such as
ORPAs, White Roads and UCRs.
We have now completed a search for the information which you requested and
confirm that this Authority holds some data relevant to your request.
I am now able to respond to you with the following:
Please find attached the following:
The legal rights associated with G Roads are not proven so we cannot
provide this information.
The only routes we can confirm have legal right of access are Byways Open
to All Traffic.
Please see attached files of BOATS in West Sussex, and also a Map showing
these. We have 13.6km.
1. With regard to the other routes you refer to in your original request
e.g. White Roads and OPRAs I can confirm that the Highways department
holds information falling within the description specified in this
part of your request. However, we estimate that the cost of complying
with this part of your request would exceed the appropriate limit of
£450. The appropriate limit has been specified in regulations and for
local authorities it is set at £450. This represents the estimated
cost of one person spending 2.5 working days in determining whether
the department holds the information, and locating, retrieving and
extracting the information. Under section 12 of the Freedom of
Information Act the Department is not obliged to comply with your
request and we will not be processing your request further
