Dartmoor Access Forum
The Dartmoor Access Forum is an independent advisory body which was established by the Dartmoor National Park Authority in November 2002. Its purpose is to give advice to the National Park Authority and other organisations, on how to make the countryside of Dartmoor more accessible and enjoyable for open air recreation, in ways which address environmental, social and economic interests.
Members of the Forum are appointed for a period of three years.
Forum meetings are open to the public and the agenda for each forthcoming meeting will be posted on the website one week before the meeting, a printed copy is also available to view at the National Park Headquarters.
In June 2015 members of the Dartmoor Access Forum and the Devon Countryside Access Forum met together for site visits to look at a range of issues, including multi use routes and difficulties of access due to vegetation growth.
