Cairngorms Local Outdoor Access Forum – needs you!

19th July 2013

It’s all change at the Cairngorms Local Outdoor Access Forum as it reaches its eighth 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 Local Outdoor Access Forum says:  “The Cairngorms Local Outdoor Access Forum really does means ‘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 Cairngorms National Park Authority is inviting applications for four places on the Cairngorms Local Outdoor Access Forum. The Forum comprises 21 members and meets about four times a year at various venues through the Park, with meetings in the summer providing the chance to learn about outdoor access in other parts of the Park.

More information can be found on the Park Authority’s website at www.cairngorms.co.uk/park-authority/outdoor/local-outdoor-access-forum/

Anyone interested in applying should note that the the closing date for applications is Monday 26th August 2013.

If you would like to speak to someone about the Forum, or to request an application form, please contact Adam, Outdoor Access Officer on 01479 873535  or email on
