Visitor Safety Group

The Visitor Safety Group (originally called Visitor Safety in the Countryside Group) was set up in May 1997. Since then the group has been meeting regularly to exchange information and develop ideas. In particular, we have looked at how to create safe access to the countryside in ways that do not spoil the landscape and heritage, or lessen the visitor’s sense of exploration and adventure.

VSG members own extensive land and property and encourage public access. All are committed to protecting and enhancing the environment. Our management group has day to day experience of visitor management and includes specialist safety advisers.

We would like more organisations that share our aims to join VSG. See information for members and our constitution. It’s easy to apply.
