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.
