NEW MEMBERS NEEDED FOR LOCAL ACCESS FORUM

The Local Access Forum managed by Cheshire West and Chester Council has vacancies for new members.
The forum aims to make a real difference to improving and developing outdoor access including developing paths and green corridors across West Cheshire.

The forum would like to include people with access-related interests; tourism, health, disability or transport.
It would also like to have a representative for land owners, occupiers and managers of land, particularly with open access or public rights of way.
Current work involves the review of the Rights of Way Improvement Plan which includes shaping management and maintenance policy, agreeing priorities and sourcing external funding.

The Council as the appointing authority will provide support for forum members and the work they do. The forum is likely to meet three times a year, with additional training and working groups as required. Certain expenses and allowances can be claimed.

The forum is an independent, statutory body providing advice to various organisations including Cheshire West and Chester Council and Town/Parish Councils, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, English Heritage, Forestry Commission, Defra, Natural England and others.

If you have the time, experience and enthusiasm to make a valuable and constructive contribution to the work of the forum, please either write or email, detailing your interests and how you think you can contribute to the Forum.

The closing date for expressions of interest is Wednesday, April 20, and successful applicants will be asked to come to a short informal discussion on Wednesday, April 27.

For an informal discussion about the work of the forum, contact Mike Norbury, Green Infrastructure Officer.
Applications should be sent to Mike Norbury, Green Infrastructure Officer, Cheshire West and Chester Council, 4 Civic Way, Ellesmere Port CH65 0BE, telephone 01244 973393, email TotalEnviroment@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk(please title emails "Local Access Forum").
