Cornwall Countryside Access Forum Recruitment Information

Appointment of members to the Cornwall Countyside Access Forum

We are looking for enthusiastic, committed people who can help develop opportunities for public access to the countryside in Cornwall.

Cornwall Countryside Access Forum provides advice to Cornwall Council and other appropriate bodies on how to make the countryside more accessible and enjoyable for open-air recreation, in ways which also address social, economic and environmental issues.

Cornwall Council is responsible for appointing members to Cornwall Countryside Access Forum and applications are currently being sought from candidates for vacancies on the Forum which will become available from July 2017. Successful candidates will be appointed for a period of three years. Cornwall Council is required to ensure that there is a balance of users, landowners and other interests on the Forum.

Public meetings of the Forum are held four times a year generally on a Tuesday afternoon, although attendance at working groups and site visits may also be necessary.

The appointments will be effective from the Forum's Annual Meeting to be held on Tuesday 25 July 2017.

The closing date for applications is Friday 19 May 2017.
