Maintenance Work within Regulations (Wales)


Virtual by Microsoft Teams

Undertaking creation of new routes, installation of path furniture, maintenance of structures and vegetation are all tasks likely to require compliance with regulations, from hedge-cutting to main river consent for a major bridge replacement. Use of contract labour will also require compliance with Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM).

This course looks at the primary regulations you need to consider and how to ensure works are compliant: what to check, who to contact, timescale and supervision.

Some regulations differ between England and Wales. This course focuses on regulations in Wales.

Main topics

  • Construction, Design & Management (CDM) Regulations
  • Protected sites, species, trees and habitats
  • Scheduled Monuments and other heritage
  • Watercourse consents
  • Marine environments and ports


The course is designed for anyone undertaking practical work on public rights of way or access land and requiring knowledge of the regulations which apply.


Richard Cuthbert has been involved in Rights of Way Management for more than twenty years and is currently a Director of IPROW and Team Leader Definitive Map and Enforcement at Hertfordshire County Council.


Members £251, non-members £359 (+VAT)
