These Regulations amend the Access to the Countryside (Appeals against Works Notices) (England) Regulations 2011 (S.I. 2011/2019), which came into force on 1st October 2011; they correct certain minor drafting defects in, and make certain minor clarifications to, those earlier Regulations.
A separate Impact Assessment has not been produced in respect of these Regulations, because the Impact Assessment which was prepared for Part 9 (coastal access) of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 examined the impact of the implementation of Part 9, of which these Regulations form part. In so far as these Regulations have effect in relation to the right of access under Part 1 (access to the countryside) of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 as it applies in relation to land which is open country or registered common land (as defined by section 1(2) and (3) of that Act), no burden on the private, voluntary or public sector is foreseen.
2000 c. 37. Section 45(1) contains a definition of “regulations” for the purposes of Part 1 of the 2000 Act. Schedule 20 to the 2009 Act needs to be read together with Part 1 of the 2000 Act (as well as with Part 9 of the 2009 Act). Section 1 of the 2000 Act was modified in its application to land which is coastal margin by Part 4 of the Schedule to S.I. 2010/558, and Schedule 1 to the 2000 Act was modified in its application to land which is coastal margin by Part 1 of the Schedule to S.I. 2010/558.
