Flintshire’s Local Access Forum searches for new members
The Flintshire Local Access Forum has recently announced its search for new members to join its panel of countryside management experts.
The forum aims to improve public access to land in the area for outdoor recreation and enjoyment, including public rights of way and access to open country and registered common land.
The invitation extends to farmers and individuals who regularly use the countryside for recreational purposes such as walkers, horse riders, bikers, or off-roaders.
As an advisory body, the forum provides suggestions to the Flintshire County Council and other groups on how to enhance public access to the countryside while balancing environmental and economic considerations.
The group meets four times a year, usually during the day, and it is essential that members attend all meetings. While the positions are unpaid, members can claim reasonable travel expenses.
The Access Team of Flintshire Local Access Forum has invited anyone interested in joining the group to send their details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The team is looking for people with experience in countryside management and individuals who regularly use the countryside for recreational purposes.
The Flintshire Local Access Forum’s announcement comes at a time when there are increasing debates around access to public land in the UK.
Many groups are calling for improved access to the countryside, while others argue that opening up previously restricted areas could lead to environmental degradation and loss of habitats.
With such divergent views, the forum’s role in striking a balance between access and environmental preservation is more critical than ever.
