Parks and Countryside Maintenance and Management
The Countryside Service provides opportunities for people to access and enjoy the West Berkshire countryside. Our aim is to protect, conserve and manage our valuable and popular countryside areas for the benefit of both wildlife and people.
You can find further information about the Countryside Code on the GOV.UK website. Please also see the video from DEFRA relating to the Countryside Code and Coronavirus.
