The objectives of the Scolt Head & District Common Rightsholders Association (SH&DCRA) are to preserve the ancient rights for the registered right holders which involves liaising with landowners and authorities who are often unaware of the rights.  These bodies are also usually ignorant of the fact that the law of commons predates common law and therefore cannot be ignored.  The committee spends a lot of time observing the common land for evidence of infringements such as blocked access, and in addressing these infringements as they arise.  They rely on common rightsholders and members of the public to bring any suspected infringements to their attention.
