Hampshire Countryside Access Plan 2015-2025

Hampshire’s countryside access network is extensive and diverse, incorporating rights of way, permissive paths and areas of public green space. As well as being highly valued by residents and visitors, the network provides significant benefits to health and well-being and to the local economy. Whilst satisfaction levels overall are high, the network needs to meet changing needs in a way that provides the most widespread benefit.

The County Council has therefore reviewed and updated the Countryside Access Plan following public consultation. The final version of the Plan has now been agreed; a version formatted for publication will shortly be available on this page.

Background information and research on which the new plan has been based, for context:

The Hampshire Countryside Access Plan 2008-13

The 2008-13 Plan included 7 local area plans each of which identifies the main issues in a particular part of Hampshire and suggests what should be done to improve access to the countryside in that area. These local plans have been retained for reference.
