Purpose of committee

North Lincolnshire Local Access Forum


Applications are invited from people with an interest in the local environment, to serve on the North Lincolnshire Local Access Forum.   Local Access Forums are statutory groups who provide advice and recommendations to decision making organisations, such as councils, about improvements to public access for outdoor recreation and sustainable travel. The Forum’s role is to provide guidance and contribute towards improving opportunities for the public to enjoy North Lincolnshire’s countryside.  There are approximately 80 Local Access Forums in England.


Applicants are appointed by a selection panel, and members should serve for initial periods of between one and three years.  The Local Access Forum meets approximately every four months.  The posts are voluntary and unpaid; however mileage expenses will be available.


The Local Access Forum is made up of 17 local people, three of whom are North Lincolnshire Council elected members.  All necessary support, training and guidance will be provided.


For an application form and further details or for an informal discussion, please contact Vikki Oxley, Democratic Services, North Lincolnshire Council, Church Square House, 30-40 High Street, Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, DN15 6NL (tel. 01724 297155), Email:
