Dear Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council,

My interest lies in understanding how the Council has spent its money on the public rights of way network and learning more about whether there has been a fair distribution.

Question 1 asks about the byways in County and asks for a list of maintenance. This has generally resulted in the neighbouring Authorities providing a small list of instances of public expenditure. Albeit, many replied that they do not hold records for the full duration requested, providing instead what they have.

Question 2 asks for the yearly totals of the maintenance, so far as you hold records.

Yours sincerely,
Mr. Jones
