The Leeds Local Access Forum (LLAF) was established in April 2004, under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.
Its primary purpose is to provide advice to the Council and to Natural England on how to make the countryside more accessible and enjoyable for open-air recreation.
Leeds Local Access Forum meets around four times a year and has a membership of up to 12 members.

Previous meeting minutes can be provided upon request. Please email LAF@leeds.gov.uk or call 0113 378 6002.
Forum members bring a wide range of experience, including recreational use (e.g. walking, riding, cycling) and land management, to the forum. Those with an interest in the land, nature conservation and heritage as well as tourism, health, business and transport can also help to provide a rounded perspective on countryside access issues.
Members are not paid, but can claim reasonable expenses for attendance at meetings and are required to confirm a commitment to the Forum and its work for a period of up to three years.
