Local Access Forum

The Local Access Forum (LAF) is independent from the County Council and advises on rights of way issues and countryside matters.

The LAF was set up in 2003 as a requirement of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act (2000). This was also when open access land was first introduced.

We work together to improve access for all users of the countryside whilst protecting biodiversity and the legitimate interests of landowners.

Meetings

The Forum meets quarterly, and you are welcome to attend.

The next Local Access Forum meeting will be held at 7.15pm, Tuesday 7 November 2017 in the Rufford Suite, County Hall, West Bridgford, Nottingham NG2 7QP.
