7 FP 512 525 +2.5% 4 10m   MZ OT D Note in two parts. Statement says end on Westley Road is west of house number 114. It's not. It should be west of 126.
8 FP 454 496 +9.3% 4 4y   MZ OT
9 FP 148 181 +22.3% 4 8w   MZ OT D Electronic Statement has the same description for FP 9 as FP 9X, both describing the whole route. In the GIS data, 9 is the western part.
9X FP 112 122 +8.9% 4 3y   MZ OT D Electronic Statement has the same description for FP 9 as FP 9X, both describing the whole route. In the GIS data, 9X is the eastern part.

17 FP 228 240 +5.3% 4 3m   MZ OT D Description in Electronic Statement doesn't distinguish between 17 and 17X. It also suggests route should be continuous, i.e. segment from TL85856330 to Cullham Road missing from the GIS data should be an FP or BR.
17X RB 194 315 +62.4% 4 4y   MZ OT D Description in Electronic Statement doesn't distinguish between 17 and 17X. It also suggests route should be continuous, i.e. segment from TL85856330 to Cullham Road missing from the GIS data should be an FP or BR.
18 FP 750 765 +2.0% 4 10m   MZ OT
19 FP 0       OT Route was upgraded to Cycle Track in 2015, and so has correctly been removed from the DM&S.
20 FP 144 186 +29.2% 4 10m   MZ OT D Line in GIS data is split with a gap for the A1302. Electronic Statement describes a continuous route.
21 BR 646 564 −12.7% 2 5y   MZ OT N Continuation south from end at TL85346223 is only a footpath (Hardwick FP 1) so this route is a dead end for cyclists and equestrians.

Table Details: To be counted in the table above, OSM ways need to be tagged with an appropriate designation=* tag (one of public_footpath, public_bridleway, restricted_byway, byway_open_to_all_traffic) and the relevant prow_ref=* tag (in the form 'Bury St Edmunds XX 12a', where XX is one of FP, BR, RB, BY; and 12 is the route number, and a is an optional suffix letter). The Mapping Status values in the table are: −1 Route should not exist; 0 Unverified; 1 Un-mapped; 2 Partially mapped; 3 Complete, but with significant deviation from definitive line; 4 Complete; 5 Complete, with adjacent field boundaries and stiles, gates etc. These values are manually maintained, so my not be up to date.

Map Details: On the map, the Yellow (FP), Blue (BR), Magenta (RB) and Red (BY) lines are Rights of Way from official Council data from 2021‑07‑06, licensed under the Open Government Licence (v3) (full copyright details). Rights of Way with mapping status 4 and 5 are shown with thin lines, others are show with thick lines. The Green lines are different Highways from OSM: Dark Green for unclassified Highways, Blue-Green for Public Cycleways, and Yellow-Green for Adopted Footways. Click on any of these lines for more information. The black lines are approximate modern parish boundaries, constructed by simplifying the polygons in OS Boundary Line. The underlying mapping is OSM Carto (key). Click inside another parish for a link to switch to that parish.

Use of data in OSM: The Rights of Way GIS data shown on the map above is suitably licenced to be used in OpenStreetMap. If doing so, please use the source tag suffolk_county_council_prow_gis_data. But please do not map Rights of Way just from this data; it is important that OSM reflects what is on the ground as well. Official Rights of Way are not always usable on the ground, and the paths on the ground do not always follow the Definitive Line. The PRoW GIS data (and Definitive Statements, where available and suitably licenced) should be used primarily to add appropriate PRoW tags to ways that have already been mapped from other sources such as aerial imagery (where paths and tracks can clearly been seen) or ground surveys.
