The Peak District Local Access Forum is an
independent group that meets regularly to review and advise the
National Park Authority and Derbyshire County Council on
improvements to public access to the countryside of the Peak
The forum first met in December 2000 following the
Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. It was re-established in
2003 with new members.
It usually meets every three months at Aldern House, Bakewell, with occasional meetings at
other venues. Its members bring experience of a broad range of
interests including walking, climbing and cycling, farming, land
management, conservation and local business.
The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and
Rural Affairs has issued a document to guide and assist forums in
carrying out their duties. It also contains advice and information
for forum secretaries, the appointing authorities and other bodies,
which may receive advice from a forum.
