The New Revised Country Code

Alert message sent 01/04/2021 16:29:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Launching the refreshed Countryside Code in time for Easter Bank holidays and the new change to pandemic restrictions on spending time outdoors.
We anticipate many people wanting to spend more time in nature as spring truly arrives. People will be using parks in both town and country, visiting nature reserves and wildlife sites and using the many footpaths and bridleways in national parks, AONBs and our wider countryside.

We want to welcome and encourage everybody to enjoy nature, but to help them do that in a way that “protects and respects” nature, other visitors and those who own and manage the land they visit. 1 April is just the start. We’ve been working on a refreshed Code over the winter involving our partners and stakeholders to update the content, language and tone to reflect what the public want and also meet the needs of farmers, site managers and others.  

We want to keep evolving the Code further, so that it is even more inclusive and relevant to as many people as possible.  We hope you will continue to work with us on further developments and further communication throughout the year.
