The Footpaths & Rights of Way Coordinator for Burnham Town Council is Councillor Vanessa Bell.

The coordinator liaises with local volunteer groups to keep the paths tidy and also liaises with Essex Highways and local landowners to keep the footpaths open – local landowners are paid a retainer by Essex County Council to keep the paths clear.

Essex Highways are responsible for all road, pavement, footpath and street lighting issues in Burnham.
