All local authorities are required, under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000, to establish a Local Access Forum to provide strategic advice on 'the improvement of public access to land in that area for the purposes of open air recreation and the enjoyment of the area, and as to such other matters as may be prescribed'. The membership of this group must be balanced between different interests in the countryside so that it can provide well-argued, unbiased advice.
