Managing Public Access and Livestock, How to Minimise the Risks

With Spring approaching and more people out and about in the countryside, issues relating to access are increasing. 

The CLA and the NFU have come together with HSE, Defra, Kent County Council, the Countryside Alliance, the Tenant Farmers Association and The Kennel Club to run an informative and engaging webinar. The aim of this event is to bring together the farming community for a briefing and discussion on how to reduce the risk to members of the public using public rights of way that cross fields where livestock graze.

We will provide both practical advice and statutory information for you to follow to reduce risk both to the public, your herds and your business. 

Our Chair for the event will be Hugh Broom, Surrey Farmer and Farmers Weekly Podcast Presenter, and the speakers include

  • Stuart Roberts, Deputy President, NFU
  • Mark Tufnell, Deputy President, CLA
  • Dr. Stephen Britton, HM Inspector of Health and Safety at the Health and Safety Executive
  • Claire Horton, Head of Access, Defra
  • Graham Rusling, Public Rights of Way and Access Service Manager from Kent County Council 

On the panel, we also have

  • James Legge, Head of Political, Countryside Alliance
  • Robert Martin, Vice-Chairman, Tenant Farmers Association
  • Stephen Jenkinson, Access and Countryside Adviser to the Kennel Club

who will be providing case studies and advice.

The event will run for approximately 90 minutes. You will hear from all of our speakers before we open up to a panel discussion, followed by an audience Q&A session. If you have any questions in advance of the event, please email them to events@cla.org.uk
