The CLA has pushed for Natural England to curb its enthusiasm for permanent additional access to private land in light of departmental cuts.

The association said Natural England should be looking at ways to improve access already in place, and concentrate on providing good quality, permissive and educational access.

The costs associated with access provision and ongoing maintenance will require continuous funding if these proposals form part of the New Environmental Land Management Scheme.
