Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

What's the best way of downgrading a relation? https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/5419884 Sustrans have stripped the NCN279 of it's status - it now shows up on their maps as "on road route not on the National Cycle Network".

I imagine there are more of these around the country - are they being treated collectively?

For discussion elsewhere see https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk-gb/2020-July/024895.html and the rest of that thread.

That particular route (NCN 279) will continue to be part of the Tour de Manche cycle route, so it should be tagged as route=bicycle, network=icn, name=Tour de Manche. (In practice, I think the Tour de Manche is mapped in OSM as a "super-relation" with several sub-relations, so it would need to be part of that.)

However, it's best not to actually retag it until the signs change on the ground. In this particular case, for example, it's possible that the route could be rationalised at the Okehampton end to share with NCN 28 - I don't have any particular knowledge of this example but understand that there's some consideration being given to rationalising alignments elsewhere around Dartmoor.
