Leeds Local Access Forum

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.  You can find the minutes of meetings in the Documents section of this page.

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.

If you would like to contact the Forum or register an interest in becoming a member, please email LAF@leeds.gov.uk or contact Roger Brookes on (0113) 378 6002. 

You can download the application form from the Documents section on this page.

Further information about Local Access Forums can be found on the Defra website​.​
