Applications for membership of the Devon Countryside Access Forum are now closed. If you are interested in applying in the future please contact the Forum Officer

The Devon Countryside Access Forum is a statutory body set up by the County Council under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. The role of the Forum is to improve public access to land for the purposes of open-air recreation and enjoyment. The Devon countryside is famous for its varied and beautiful landscape and the Forum will be helping to ensure that opportunities for access and exploration are fully considered.

The Forum is a voluntary body with fifteen members, appointed following advertising, to represent land managers and owners, users of land and those with other interests. The Forum will advise the local authority and other bodies on access issues and will also consider wider strategic issues such as the Rights of Way Improvement Plan.

This site will enable you to view agendas and minutes of the Forum, find out about members, membership and explore links to other relevant sites.

Members of the public are very welcome to attend Forum meetings and any questions for consideration by the Forum may be submitted at least three days before a meeting. Public participation at the meeting is at the discretion of the Chair.

The Forty-fourth meeting of the Devon Countryside Access Forum will be held at Great Moor House at 10.00 a.m. on Tuesday, 26th April.
