Public Rights of Way and Access to Land
The exercise of public rights of way has long been a source of conflict and confrontation between users, landowners, and local authorities. Public Rights of Way and Access to Land clarifies the arcane and often archaic UK law. The book explains the creation and loss of public rights of way and access to land, how their existence can be ascertained, and the nature of the obligations to maintain and manage them. This third edition has been comprehensively updated to take account of recent UK legislation including the Commons Act 2006, the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006, and the regulations made under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. A number of significant cases are discussed including those dealing with rights arising from long use and the creation of village greens. This edition sets out the Countryside and Public Rights of Way Act 2000 in full with annotations to indicate when the various sections commenced and any regulations made under those sections, together with all relevant provisions from the Highways Act 1980, the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, and the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006, as well as other relevant planning notes and guidance.
