Monmouthshire County Council is seeking new members to serve on its local access forum.
The forum provides guidance on the improvement of public access in the county for open-air recreation and enjoyment and it advises and assists with the implementation of the council’s Public Rights of Way Improvement Plan.
Councillor Giles Howard, MCC’s cabinet member for Culture and Environment, said: “Membership of the local access forum provides an opportunity for those with knowledge and experience of countryside access issues in Monmouthshire to advise the council and other bodies on countryside access and recreation.”
The forum meets at least quarterly and members are appointed on a personal basis according to their knowledge, skills or experience of access to the countryside, including the interest of all users and owner/occupiers. Forum members will be able to claim reasonable expenses.
The council hopes to find members able to contribute to the forum for the next three years.
Anyone wishing to be considered for membership should contact:
Secretary of Monmouthshire Local Access Forum,

Tel: 01633 644850

Completed forms should be returned by Friday 15 March.
