Area Officers have delegated powers to work for and on behalf of the society in the field. An area officer covers a defined area, for example a whole county such as Staffordshire, or part of a county such as the Derbyshire Dales District. Responsibility for areas where there is no area officer is taken by volunteers at Taylor House.
Each area officer has an individual approach to their role. As an example, Rhoda Barnett writes:
"I communicate regularly with the inspectors in my area, offering help and guidance where necessary. I deal directly with reports of faults in parishes not covered by inspectors. When faults appear to be taking much longer to resolve than is appropriate with respect to their severity and importance for walkers, I contact the highway authority and seek a speedier resolution, if necessary by means of serving legal notices on the authority, following agreement by the management team. I give responses to consultations from authorities about proposed diversion and extinguishment orders, taking into account the inspector's views if there is one for the relevant parish."
