Membership Following County Council elections, 3 members of the Council were appointed to the Forum.
Coastal Access An important role for the Cumbria Local Access Forum is to input into the Coastal Access consultation process. Cumbria is one of the pilot areas chosen by Natural England for the implementation of Coastal Access. Lessons learned here will influence how the coastal path will develop around the country.
The new access rights between Allonby and Whitehaven are expected to come into force in Spring 2014.
