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.

Our About the Broads Local Access Forum page and the constitution will tell you more about the aims and responsibilities of the forum. On our website we also have details of the Broads Local Access Forum members.

The Annual Report will tell you more about recent activities of the forum.

For more generic information on Local Access Forums see Defra's Guidance on Local Access Forums in England.
