The Law Commission is undertaking a review of all law relating to wildlife. This includes the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 which covers footpaths and also links through to the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. Those that have an intrusive footpath running through their family home should contact the Law Commission to express their concern and press for a change to the law. Further information can be found at http://lawcommission.justice.gov.uk
The campaign gathers pace. People from across the country, who have footpaths running through their family home, have contacted us concerned that anyone has legal access into their home. The MP local to each of them is being contacted to express their concern and to press for a change to the law. The document below (Briefing Note) gives some background and lists those MP’s who are currently being contacted. If you are aware of anyone so affected contact the campaign through: www.intrusivefootpaths.org.uk
