Countryside Access (Dedication of Land as Access Land) (Wales) Regulations 2003 (S.I. No. 135 (W. 9) of 2003).

Type of law

Section 16 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 enables a person who holds an interest in land (being a freehold interest or a leasehold interest of which not less than 90 years remain unexpired) to dedicate that land as "access land" for the purposes of Part I of the Act. Dedicated land will be subject to the public right of access in the same way as if the land had been included in a map prepared by the Countryside Council for Wales under Part I of the Act and will be subject to the same general restrictions (set out in Schedule 2 to the Act), except to the extent that those who dedicate the land remove or relax those restrictions by the terms of the dedication.
