Access officers and rangers
Access officers help facilitate access rights for the access authority. They have been key players in developing core path plans and often help run the local access forum. If you have a problem with access, speak to your local access officer who can try to resolve the issue either directly or through the local access forum.
Countryside rangers also help promote understanding and awareness of the Code. They encourage responsible enjoyment of the countryside for everyone by providing guided walks and wildlife viewing opportunities and often manage sites such as parks or long distance paths.
Further information is available on the powers and duties of local authorities and national park authorities .
