Wiltshire Local Access Forum

The Local Access Forum was established to support and advise Wiltshire and Swindon Councils in their quest to improve access to the countryside for their residents and visitors in the light of the CRoW Act (The Countryside & Rights of Way Act 2000).

The above website has been established which provides both a comprehensive inventory of the land available for public access and details of the workings of the Local Access Forum - its minutes, meetings and membership.

Also have a look at the website for the Swindon Local Access Forum
