Broads Local Access Forum
The forum is a semi-independent body which advises on improving public access to land within the Broads Authority's executive area.
It was established under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act to promote closer liaison and understanding between the various groups and organisations which have an interest in access to the Broads and the adjacent parts of Norfolk and Suffolk.
This leaflet will give you an overview of the work of the forum.
The Annual Report will tell you more about recent activities of the forum.
