Become a Local Access Forum member

The Peak District Local Access Forum provides the authorities with advice on how best to improve access to the countryside for the purposes of open-air recreation, whilst taking into account the needs of land management and nature conservation.

It was established following the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 and covers the national park area and the countryside of north-west Derbyshire around Buxton, New Mills and Glossop.

Members must come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences so that the advice they give can be as balanced and inclusive as possible.
