Somerset Local Access Forum (Somerset Local Access Forum)

Opportunity image

This opportunity is a great way to get involved in the management of public access in the county. Engaging in consultations and draft policy documents can make a substantial difference to the management of public access.

It is expected that forum members attend the meetings and engage productively with discussions. As the forum sets its own agenda, these discussions can be varied and wide ranging but all focus on ensuring opportunities for access and exploration of Somerset are fully considered. The forum further advises the Council and other bodies on access issues and considers wider strategic issues such as Rights of Way Improvement Plans.

Volunteers say:

Being a LAF member is very interesting and rewarding

I make a difference to improving education and access to the countryside for all users

I have met like minded people who have a passion for access and Rights of Way.
