The latest maps of proposed updates to open access land in Wales are now available for the public to view and comment on.

November 23rd is the deadline for people to make representations to the Countryside Council for Wales, which has produced 14 maps covering the whole of Wales updating open access details to areas of mountain, moor, heath, downland and registered common land.

The review, which is required by law every ten years, began in July and the new maps are scheduled to be published in provisional form next August and, after any further appeals and modifications, in conclusive map form in September 2014.

People who like to go walking have often been keen to secure greater rights to the outdoors through campaigning groups like the Ramblers and the Campaign for National Parks.

Major historical events in the history of the access movement include the 1932 great trespass on Kinder Scout in the Peak District, plus the passing of the National Parks Act in 1949 and the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2001.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801467211-ADNFCR
