5 Means of access to New Forest.E+W+S+N.I.

(1)In this section the expression “structure” means a wall, fence or similar erection and the expression “means of access” has the same meaning as in [F1section 290 of the M1Town and Country Planning Act 1971].

(2)Without prejudice to the provisions of any other enactment, where a structure or hedge is for the time being situated along or adjacent to or forms part of the perambulation of the New Forest as altered by this Act no such structure or hedge shall be altered so as to provide or enlarge a means of access to places within the said perambulation unless there shall have been provided in connection with such means of access to the satisfaction of the verderers and in accordance with such conditions as they may impose a cattle-grid or such other works (if any) for preventing or restricting the passage of animals as may be required by the verderers.

(3)Any cattle-grid or other works provided under the provisions of the foregoing subsection shall be maintained to the satisfaction of the verderers.

(4)If any person contravenes the foregoing provisions of this section he shall be liable to a fine not exceeding fifty pounds; and the verderers may themselves provide or, as the case may be, maintain the cattle-grid or other works which should have been provided or maintained and recover the expenses of so doing from that person.
