The Devon Countryside Access Forum is a statutory local access forum under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. It has fifteen members who advise on the “improvement of public access to land for the purposes of open-air recreation and the enjoyment of the area..” The Forum gives independent advice to a number of Government bodies in addition to Devon County Council, district and borough councils and parish and town councils.

Devon County Council is currently appointing members to the Forum and would like to receive applications from anyone with an interest in recreational access. I should be very grateful if you could pass this e-mail onto your networks.

We would love to hear from landowners and managers, access users and people with other relevant professional interests such as planning, education, sport, sustainable transport and business, or people who could represent groups currently under-represented such as young people or ethnic minority groups. Although membership is voluntary, a generous mileage rate is paid.

Why don’t you consider applying to join the Forum? It’s an interesting opportunity and you can:-

  1. contribute to the debate- share your experience and expertise from your specific field;
  2. meet and work with others- listen to and share ideas on access to solve problems;
  3. be informed- receive regular local and national access information updates and information relating to access law, policy, legislation, and how it can benefit social, economic and environmental issues;
  4. help make a difference- influence local and UK policy affecting access.

For details and an application form please see . The closing date is February 20th 2015.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Hilary Winter, Tel: 01392 382084

Finally, with a view to the Neighbourhood Plan (NP) for Salcombe, town council are pleased to announce that the website dedicated to all aspects of this important public engagement exercise is now live and can be visited at Contrary to some misguided opinions, this is not merely a forum. Much work has gone into explaining the background of the NP and there is a blog facility available for everyone to make their comments. We are now more enthusiastic than ever to encourage people to come forward and get involved with the NP steering group, or maybe you have skills in other areas like researching, poster creation or you may feel drawn to a particular topic heading that you would like to contribute to. This engagement will ultimately take the plan forward and benefit the whole town with improvements on many levels. Should you wish to get involved further please give the Salcombe Town Clerk Gill Claydon a call on 01548 842282 or email to
