Applications from walkers, horse-riders, tourism providers and those with a knowledge of the Definitive Map review process would be particularly welcome. Over the coming year the Forum will be looking at coastal access (the SW Coast Path), as well as other issues associated with access. During 2018 the Forum responded to a number of local and national consultations including Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty Management Plans and the national Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy. It continued to suggest specific improvements for disability access across the County.
All applications will be considered and 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 business. Although membership is voluntary, a generous mileage rate is paid. Formal meetings are held three times a year. There are occasional small working groups and a yearly training day.
For details and an application form please see www.devon.gov.uk/dcaf or contact Hilary Winter on 07837 382771. The closing date is Friday, 22nd February 2019.
