Changes are to be made to the council's constitution for public rights of way and highways to give officers more power to make decisions.
Councillors unanimously agreed to make amendments at the Royal Borough's full council meeting at the Windsor Guildhall on Tuesday night.
The constitution previously delegated functions to the right of way and highway licensing panel, but routine matters for operational reasons can now be dealt with by officers.
Cllr John Stretton (Con, Bisham and Cookham) said it would 'improve' rights of way across the 591 footpaths, which cover 190 miles across the borough.
