Do you want to improve outdoor access and recreation in North Bedfordshire?

Can you spare some time to help us!

Do you love the great outdoors? Are you a countryside user?

Do you want to influence future outdoor access and countryside recreation developments?

We need local volunteers to join our Local Access Forum. This is an important group which was established as a result of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 and will make significant inputs into countryside recreation and outdoor access issues in the Borough of Bedford.

The Borough of Bedford Local Access Forum provides independent strategic advice to Bedford Borough Council and many other local and national organisations to improve access for all to local countryside for recreation whilst protecting wildlife and landscape.

The membership of the forum needs to represent a wide range of interests in a balanced way, so we are looking for applicants with a broad experience across one or more of the following:-

  • Land owners/ Land managers
  • Tourism
  •  Walking
  • Local Business
  • Dog walkers
  • Diversity and ethnic groups
  • Cycling (on and off road)
  • Disabled and inclusive access
  • Equestrian (riding and/or driving)
  • Conservation and Heritage
  • Motorised vehicle use
  • Local authorities
  • Countryside sports  
  • Young people and Youth organizations

                

This is an independent advisory group and each member strives to recognise the views of others and aims to reach a consensus on a wide range of countryside issues. We are looking for people capable of sharing their skills and experiences and not only representing the views of any particular organisation.
