Devon Countryside Access Forum

Applications now being accepted for places on the Devon Countryside Access Forum. The closing date is Friday 21 February 2020.

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 17 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.

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