Yorkshire Dales Access Forum seeks new members
8:00am Monday 28th October 2013 in News
A group that helps improve public access and recreation in the Yorkshire Dales National Park is on the lookout for new members.
There are currently four vacancies on the independent Yorkshire Dales Access Forum, which provides guidance and advice on ways to improve and manage public access and opportunities for open-air recreation in the national park’s 680 square miles.
Rachel Briggs, the park’s access development officer, said: “The forum’s job is to work with individuals and organisations that use the national park and advise on ways to improve their visits.
“This can be anything from looking at mobility issues to suggesting the upgrade of a specific footpath. The members also take part in consultation on a range of documents and strategies.”
Current members represent interests ranging from land management and agriculture to local business and outdoor recreation.
The forum meets three times a year, although members also sit on a variety of advisory groups that meet more frequently. The deadline is November 18. For details contact Mohammed Dhalech on (01969) 652363 or email@example.com .
