Car parking

Responsible behaviour by the public

The Access Code says:

Access rights do not extend to any motorised activities. However, many people use their cars to get into the outdoors and parking a vehicle without regard to the interests of other people can cause problems. Therefore, when you park your vehicle it is important not to cause any damage or create an obstruction by:

  • not blocking an entrance to a field or building
  • not making it difficult for other people to use a road or track
  • having regard for the safety of others
  • trying not to damage the verge
  • using a car park if one is nearby.

Responsible behaviour by land managers

The Access Code says:

Where appropriate, such as where there is a lot of informal parking causing local concerns, work with your local authority and other bodies to see if a formal car park could be provided.
