11th February 2011

It’s all change at the Cairngorms Local Outdoor Access Forum as it reaches its sixth year. The Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) is keen to hear from volunteers who can make a positive contribution to outdoor access in the Cairngorms National Park by becoming a member of the Forum.

The Forum plays a vital role in advising the CNPA and others on matters to do with outdoor access, sculpting and shaping future projects to deliver wide ranging benefits to communities and visitors alike whilst respecting the land, the wildlife and the culture of the Cairngorms National Park.

Paul Corrigan, Convener of the Forum said: “The Cairngorms Local Outdoor Access Forum really does mean ‘local’ with members drawn from all communities of the Park using their experience, knowledge and judgement collectively to formally advise the Park Authority on access matters across the whole National Park. Forum meetings are always stimulating, interesting and enlightening.”

The CNPA is inviting applications for six places on the Cairngorms Local Outdoor Access Forum. The Forum which comprises 21 members and meets quarterly at various venues through the Park, with the Forum’s summer meetings always providing an opportunity to get out and about and learn more about outdoor access in other parts of the Park.
