 The Devon Countryside Access Forum 


The Devon Countryside Access Forum is a statutory local access forum under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.  It has fifteen members who advise on the “improvement of public access to land for the purposes of open-air recreation and the enjoyment of the area..”  The Forum has a remit to give independent advice to a number of Government bodies, in addition to Devon County Council, district and borough councils and parish and town councils.


Devon County Council is currently appointing members to the Forum and would like to receive applications from anyone with an interest in recreational access.

We would love to hear from landowners and managers, access users and people with other relevant professional interests such as health, planning, education, sport, sustainable transport and business, or people who could represent groups currently under-represented such as young people or ethnic minority groups. Although membership is voluntary, a generous mileage rate is paid.

Why don’t you consider applying to join the Forum? It’s an interesting opportunity and you can:-

  1. contribute to the debate- share experience and expertise from your specific field;
  2. meet and work with others- listen to and share ideas to solve access problems;
  3. be informed- receive regular local and national access updates and information relating to access law, policy, legislation, and how it can benefit social, economic and environmental issues;
  4. help make a difference- influence local and UK policy affecting access.

For details and an application form please see www.devon.gov.uk/dcaf The closing date is February 25th 2016.
