You mean the bit labelled "Part 2" which says the court must be satisfied that the offender has caused harassment alarm or distress?
Also I think its just making it clearer what rules to use.. as it is I'm sure they could use some law for harrassing or disturbing anyway..

I'm confused by the whole thing. The Open Spaces Society lady obviously thinks there is a risk of it affecting countryside access.
Conspiracy charges for you sonny! You're nicked! :)
It reads more to me as if they intend to use it to e.g. ban people who repeatedly vandalise public areas from being on them. In that context doesn't sound too bad. Perhaps a protection would be that a court order would need to be applied to the individual(s) concerned first?
As for travellers, I would be pleased to see anything that makes it less difficult to remove and prosecute them. If they came and went without leaving litter and causing damage I wouldn't mind, but this is invariably not the case.
