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

- Cycling (on and off road)
- Disabled and inclusive access
- Equestrian (riding and/or driving)
- Conservation and Heritage
- 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.
