Public Rights of Way
Public Rights of Way can have an impact on the management of land. The CLA is actively involved in protecting landowner and rural business interests.
The legislation which governs footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways and Byways Open to All Traffic (BOATS) is complex, and landowners often require advice.
The CLA Access Team can provide advice on Public Rights of Way across the spectrum of issues - including how such rights are claimed, management, diversion, and extinguishment.
The issues that members raise with the CLA on Public Rights of Way help inform the lobbying effort.
Jeremy Clarkson has lost his attempt to keep the public out of his land on the Isle of Man.
He argued that the path the public was using was not a right of way, but a permissive path and that permission to use it was withdrawn.
Ramblers argued that it had been used by the public for over 21 years and that a right of way had therefore been established.

The Advisory Services are made available to members on the basis that members' rights to compensation and the liability (if any) of CLA and its officers and/or its staff advisers, are restricted in the following ways. In the event of any advice given by any CLA staff adviser being given negligently or otherwise being incorrect no liability whatsoever is accepted by the CLA or its officers or by its staff advisers concerned
(a) towards any person who is not the current CLA member to whom the advice was directly given,
(b) to any person in the respect of consequential loss or loss of profits, or
(c) to any person for any sum exceeding £50,000 in respect of any one enquiry (whether made or responded to orally or in writing and whether dealt with at one time or over a period of time).
Any person making use of the Advisory Services accepts such restrictions. Members should refer to appropriate professional advisers in private practice before taking any particular course of action potentially or actually involving any substantial amounts of money.
Please note that whilst the advisers are able to advise on a wide range of subjects relating to land ownership, they cannot act in place of a member's own solicitor, accountant, surveyor and tax specialist by, for example, drafting documents or corresponding on their behalf and may be precluded, by the rules of their own professions, from advising one CLA member against another CLA member in the case of conflict.
