Introduction

Access to the countryside At present, the countryside is accessible to everyone; there are certain projects, such as the KSCP (Kentish Stour Countryside Project) that promote easy access to rural areas for all visitors whatever their ability. They believe that access should be available by many forms of transport; the KSCP promotes walking, cycling, and public transport as a means of getting to rural areas. The Countryside Agency The countryside agency promotes access to the countryside; it brings together all the different countryside dimensions, for example economic, environmental, community and enjoyment into a single national body. Its aim is to achieve sustainable development in the countryside. The countryside agency does not make policies or deliver services but provides evidence and advice to those who do. They have a number of statutory duties which include designating national parks and mapping open land for public access. They go about this by: * Identifying problems and opportunities by researching issues in the countryside. * Testing solutions via advice and grants to tackle rural issues or shape future policies. * Sharing good practice and encouraging others to roll out solutions. * Give advice on the impact of policies on the countryside and rural communities. ...read more.
