The Dartmoor Access Forum is looking for volunteers to help provide advice to Dartmoor National Park Authority and other organisations on ways to improve access and recreation for all in Dartmoor National Park.
This is an independent advisory body of volunteers who have the passion, skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to help make a difference for Dartmoor. The Forum aims to make Dartmoor more accessible and enjoyable for open air recreation, in ways which address environmental, social and economic interests. It was established by the Dartmoor National Park Authority in November 2002 and normally meets, in public, four times each year. Meetings are normally held at the National Park Headquarters at Bovey Tracey on the first Tuesday of March, June, September and December.
Members of the Forum are appointed for a period of three years. One third of places on the Forum come up for renewal each year. The Forum is keen to hear form people with experience in a range of areas including leisure, tourism and recreational activities, farming, land management or traditional countryside pursuits, nature conservation, archaeology, education or local business. The Forum would also welcome applications from minority groups, young people and people with disabilities who are happy to add their voice and experience.
Forum members act in a voluntary capacity, but the Authority can pay reasonable expenses. Further information and application forms can be downloaded from Dartmoor National Park Authority's website, or call 01626 832093
The closing date for receipt of applications is 10 October.
