Ceredigion's network of public paths and other land are major assets – as well as providing opportunities for recreation, they also have a part to play in tourism development and in promoting active lifestyles.
The Ceredigion Local Access Forum helps ensure that opportunities for access to coast and countryside are fully considered.
The Forum is a voluntary body with up to 22 members, appointed following advertising, which represents land managers and owners, users of land and those with other interests. The Forum advises the local authority and other bodies on access and recreation issues.
Under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 a forum must consist of members who represent:
- Users of local access land and rights of way
- Owners and occupiers of access land and land with rights of way
- Other interests especially relevant to the area
