Herefordshire Local Access Forum

The Herefordshire Local Access Forum (HLAF) is a statutory body set up by the council under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. The role of the forum is to improve public access to land for the purposes of open air recreation and enjoyment.

The Herefordshire countryside is renowned for its beautiful and varied landscape and the forum is helping to ensure that opportunities for access and exploration are fully considered.

The forum is a voluntary body with 22 members, appointed to represent landowners, users of the land and those with other interests. It advises the local authority and other bodies on access issues and also considers wider strategic issues such as the Herefordshire Rights of Way Improvement Plan.

For more information about LAF regulations and guidelines visit the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs website.
