What we do
Local access forums (LAFs) are statutory bodies, introduced by the government through the Countryside and Rights of Way (CROW) Act 2000.
They are independent advisory bodies set up to advise the local council and give fresh ideas on ways to improve public access and open-air recreation for the benefit of all.
In carrying out its functions, a LAF must also consider the needs of land management and the desirability of conserving the natural beauty of the area.
