Helping people access the countryside
The Northumberland National Park and County Joint Local Access Forum is an independent body with an interest in public rights of way and access to the countryside in our area. Northumberland National Park Authority works in partnership with Northumberland County Council in the running of the forum.
Please note that whilst meetings of the JLAF are not public meetings, members of the public are very welcome to attend as observers. JLAF meetings are also an ideal opportunity for people interested in joining the JLAF to come along and find out what we do. The dates of 2020 meetings are Thursdays 30 January, 23 April, 16 July and 15 October.
The next JLAF meeting was scheduled for Thursday 23 April 2020. The venue was to have been the Kielder area but due to the Covid 19 pandemic restrictions and guidance, the meeting is cancelled. However, JLAF members will still be discussing key items with a view to taking these forward to the next scheduled meeting on Thursday 16 July 2020.
If you have a question you wish to put to the forum for this meeting please contact the JLAF Administrator on [email protected] or [email protected], preferably within ten working days of the meeting but we welcome questions at any time.
The theme for the JLAF’s meetings in 2020 will be ‘Climate Change and likely impact on Access‘.
The agenda can be viewed under ‘JLAF Agendas and Minutes’ further down the page.
