New Forest Access Forum seeks volunteers

Published Tuesday 18 December 2007

The New Forest Access Forum is hoping to recruit two new volunteers in 2008, to represent tourism and disability.

The Forum is the recognised independent advisory body on public access to the countryside in the New Forest area.  It is established and administered by the New Forest National Park Authority and Hampshire County Council under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.

Members represent a cross-section of interests including land management, commoning, walking and local business. This ensures that the needs of all groups are taken into account when the Forum prepares its advice.

The Forum currently has vacancies for people to represent tourism and disability. Forum members should actively seek the views of groups whose interests they represent, and should be able to demonstrate an inclusive approach.

The Forum meets four times a year, and meetings are held in Lyndhurst on a Monday morning. Travel expenses are paid.

Anyone interested can contact Debbie Williams on 01590 646665 or email access.forum@newforestnpa.gov.uk for an application pack.

The closing date for applications is Monday 21 January 2008.
