Devon Countryside Access Forum - seeking new members

Please see below an email sent by Hilary Winter (Forum Officer of Devon Countryside Access Forum) regards recruiting new members to the Devon Countryside Access Forum:

The Devon Countryside Access Forum is a statutory local access forum under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.  It has sixteen members who advise on the “improvement of public access to land for the purposes of open-air recreation and the enjoyment of the area..”  The Forum gives independent advice to a number of Government bodies in addition to Devon County Council, district and borough councils and parish and town councils.
Devon County Council is currently appointing members to the Forum and would like to receive applications from anyone with an interest in recreational access.  I should be very grateful if you could pass this e-mail onto your networks and/or publicise via social media.
We would love to hear from landowners and managers, access users and people with other relevant professional interests such as planning, education, sport, sustainable transport and tourism.
Why don’t you consider applying to join the Forum?  It’s an interesting opportunity and you can:-
share your experience and expertise from your specific field or interest;
meet and work with others- listen to and share ideas on access to solve problems;
be informed- receive regular local and national access information updates;
help make a difference- influence local and UK policy affecting access.
The Forum holds three public meetings a year plus a training day.   
For details and an application form please see   The closing date is Wednesday, February 22nd 2017.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
