Access to the Countryside (Dedication of Land) (England) Regulations 2003 (S.I. No. 2004 of 2003).

Type of law

Section 16 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 enables persons to dedicate their land for the purposes of Part I of that Act, which establishes a new regime for access to the countryside. These Regulations, which apply in relation to England only, provide what steps are to be taken when land is dedicated under section 16. Regulation 3 enables the general restrictions that are to be observed by persons exercising the right of access under Part I to be removed or relaxed in relation to dedicated land. Regulation 4 provides for the supply of information to persons who are requested to consent to a dedication of land. Regulation 5 sets out what information is to be included in an instrument of dedication, and regulation 6 provides for a copy of that instrument to be sent to certain persons, including the Countryside Agency. Regulation 7 enables a dedication made under section 16 to be amended.
