Local Access Forum
We are an independent advisory body working with Bedford Borough
Council to improve your enjoyment of the Borough's countryside
whilst safeguarding its future. It's now time to have your say on
using the countryside in the 21st century.
The Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 required
all Highway Authorities to set up a Local Access Forum. Our
members are local people with a balance of interests in the
countryside, including recreational users, land managers and those
with interests in nature conservation, heritage, business, health,
transport and access for the less able.
The Forum consists of up to 22 members, all volunteers giving their
time and experience to improving countryside access for the future.
The ability for each member to recognise the validity of the
views of others and to seek consensus is vital, as is independence
from the views of any particular organisation.
We hope you use our site to enhance your future enjoyment of the
countryside through the information links, to gain information
about the work of the forum and share your views so that we may
better represent your interests.
