When the Council 'adopts' the Core Paths Plan, it means that the legal designation of the core paths has been adopted, not that the Council has taken over ownership of the routes.
Although the Council has no obligation to maintain the routes, it has a duty to make sure that they are adequately signed and in reasonable condition. The condition will vary according to the route, so a remote upland path might be quite be in quite a different condition from a flat path in a town. The Council will endeavour to have all the routes in reasonable condition by the end of 2015.
