Revised Countryside Code

Newspapers including the Guardian have reported on the publication of the revised Countryside Code, intended to provide guidance ahead of the ‘unprecedented’ number of domestic holidaymakers in rural areas of the country this summer

The new guidance provides the first major revision to the code for more than a decade, and asks visitors to stay on footpaths, keep their dogs ‘under control and in sight’, and ‘take care with BBQs’.

The report notes that Natural England will spend £50,000 promoting the code in the next financial year with its messages also featuring in a wider Government campaign to ‘Respect the Outdoors’.
