Local Access Forum

The Yorkshire Dales Access Forum (YDAF) was established by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority in October 2002 as a statutory advisory body, following the Countryside and Rights of Way Act (CRoW) 2000.

The Forum’s role is to provide advice on improving access within the National Park. As such, it advises the Authority on the right of Open Access to the countryside. It plays and important role in advising more generally on matters of recreation and access across the 2,000 kilometres of footpaths, bridleways and byways in the National Park.
