CATEGORY: Govt Consultation Responses (2013-14) 

The draft modification order provides for core paths to be temporarily exempt from access rights (ie closed) where land is already able to be exempt from access rights:

1) Because of animal disease


2) By way of a Section 11 order under the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003. This is usually brought in connection with events eg Commonwealth Games 2014, a golf tournament or car rally.
