Further details of these partnership groups can be found here.

The role of the Partnership Plan Groups is detailed below:

Landscape Advisory Group (LAG)
Role: ‘The Landscape Advisory Group’s role is to monitor and have strategic oversight of the priorities, ambitions and actions outlined in the Partnership Plan of Exmoor National Park Authority in delivering the conservation and enhancement of the distinctive characteristics, qualities and condition of Exmoor’s diverse landscapes. With broad representation from key partner organisations, the LAG supports, reviews and challenges the Authority’s holistic delivery of the landscape related actions seeking to conserve and enhance the National Park’s outstanding natural and cultural landscapes’.

Exmoor Local Access Forum (ELAF)
Role: The purpose of the Exmoor Local Access Forum (ELAF) is to provide advice to Exmoor National Park Authority and other specified bodies on how to improve “public access to land in the area for the purposes of open-air recreation and the enjoyment of the area”, (section 94 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act), in ways which address social, economic and environmental interests.
The Exmoor Local Access Forum has a remit to advise on and identify potential for strategic programmes, projects, policies that may be relevant towards improving and increasing access to increase and improve access to, and enjoyment of, open spaces, public rights of way and the general countryside in Exmoor National Park.  The Forum provides an arena within which to raise strategic issues, exchange ideas and share good practice and experiences.
