Aldershot & District Military Lands Byelaws 1976 is one of the four Byelaws which set out a number of restrictions on the use of land in Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire. 

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) is proposing new bylaws affecting these lands; whilst it’s not clear what the proposed bylaws are, the published Communications Plans indicates that there might be more restrictions in terms of public access over these lands. 

We, the undersigned, believe that the public must continue to enjoy the same access to these lands as before; these are lands that are used by families, communities and groups. For decades the public has walked, run, cycled and otherwise enjoyed the lands. Whilst the safety of the public and armed forces personnel is an important factor, community access is also crucial as it improves the health and well-being of residents. 

The Ministry of Defence has/is selling land for development such as Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut, therefore it is important that those who have had right of access over these lands and the new settled community will continue to do so.
