Moray Local Outdoor Access Forum (LOAF)

We have a statutory duty to establish at least one Local Outdoor Access Forum (LOAF) in our area.

The LOAF is an advisory body to us in our role as the Area Access Authority. It has no executive powers but plays an important consultative and consensus building role on outdoor access related matters across Moray. This includes involvement in:

  • Moray Local Outdoor Access Strategy Review
  • Moray Core Path Plan Preparation
  • Application of powers to uphold access rights
  • Raising awareness of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code
  • Procedures for conflict/dispute resolution
  • Comment on relevant Planning applications
