The Devon Countryside Access Forum is a statutory local access forum under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. It has sixteen 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 gives 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 planning, education, sport, sustainable transport and tourism.
