A statutory declaration may help a landowner protect themselves against public path claims, which are based solely on user evidence. A statutory declaration involves the landowner depositing a map, statement, and statutory declaration with the highway authority, showing which rights of way they acknowledge on their land.
At this time there are no such declarations in Slough.
