Flintshire and Wrexham Local Access Forum

Published: 13/07/2018

Would you like your voice heard in the debate about the future of public access in the countryside? We are keen to hear from anyone interested in joining the new joint Flintshire and Wrexham Local Access Forum. We are interested in people who have experience in the management of the countryside, such as farmers, or people who regularly use the countryside, such as walkers, horseriders, bikers or offroaders. The function of the Forum is to advise Wrexham County Borough Council and Flintshire County Council about improving public access to land in the area for the purposes of open-air recreation and the enjoyment of the area. This includes improvement to the public rights of way and the right of access to open country and registered common land. The Forum meets 4 or 5 times a year, normally during the day. This is a joint Local Access Forum that covers Flintshire County and Wrexham County Borough. It is important that members can attend all meetings. These are unpaid positions, but Forum members will be able to claim reasonable travel expenses. Any person wishing to be considered for membership can obtain further details by emailing either Martin Howarth, Parks, Countryside and Rights of Way Manager, Wrexham County Borough Council or Tom Woodall, Access and Natural Environment Manager, Flintshire County Council,
