A local planning authority1 may acquire compulsorily2 any open country3 in its area, other than excepted land4, if it appears to the authority that it is requisite that the public should have access to such land for open-air recreation, and that in the circumstances it is expedient that access should be secured by the acquisition of the land5. The authority may also acquire compulsorily any land surrounded by or contiguous or adjacent to such land if it appears to the authority that the proper carrying out of its purpose would be substantially prejudiced unless this further land was acquired6.
