New members are being sought for the Ceredigion Local Access Forum.
Ceredigion Local Access Forum (LAF) was established in 2002, as required by the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (the CROW Act). The LAF has reached the end of its latest three year term and arrangements are being made to appoint new members.
The function of the Forum is to advise the Council, Natural Resources Wales and other bodies exercising functions of the CROW Act, as to the improvement of public access to land in the area for the purposes of open-air recreation and the enjoyment of the area. These bodies must, by law, have regard to relevant advice given by the Forum.
Ceredigion County Council are seeking to appoint new members to the LAF and interested applicants can apply to be considered for membership until 02 July 2018.
Councillor Rhodri Evans, Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration said, “Ceredigion County Council are currently looking for new members to form the new Local Access Forum, which will cover a period of three years. If you’re someone who’s willing to play a full part in all aspects of a LAF’s work and could help advise on the improvement of public access to land in the area for the purposes of open-air recreation and the enjoyment of the area, then you could be an ideal person to be a part of the new Forum.”
