Councils have a duty to set up Local Access Forums. The aim of the forum is to advise on the improvement of public access for open-air leisure and the enjoyment of the area.
The forum consists of 17 members, including local councillors, network users, landowners, and other interested parties.
We must consider the forum's views when making certain decisions such as draft maps, long-term closures, access, and improvement plans.
