Barney explains the importance of the SACC

Thursday, 29 May 2014

Countryside Alliance Executive Chairman Barney White-Spunner writes:  In mid-May the Welsh Government announced that its plans to develop access to the Welsh countryside and outdoor recreation are open to further discussion. Considering plans for legislation had been due to come forward last December, this is a great coup for Sustainable Access Campaign Cymru (SACC), the coalition or rural organisations set up as a result of the work of our Director for Wales, Rachel Evans. The group has its origins in making the case for anglers and riparian owners in the access for all and "right to paddle" debate involving canoeists. The fact that we are keeping the discussion open before any legislative decisions are made is a testament to the coherent and compelling case being put forward.
