BRAW is Dundee's Local Access Forum which provides an opportunity for interested people to discuss access issues. A core group has been formed as the ‘business’ part of the Forum. This is a group of about 16 representatives from the wider Access Forum. The core group meet four times a year and will report back to the wider forum annually. Typical functions of a Local Access Forum Informing, raising awareness and generating discussion Involving members in access strategy and policy development Co-ordinating access projects and initiatives Advising and problem solving An initial public meeting was held on 8th February 2005 in Committee Room 1, 14 City Square. The meeting included presentations from Dundee City Council, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Paths for All Partnership. The meeting was designed to give potential forum members an insight into access issues and to show how a Local Access Forum might work for Dundee. A further meeting for those interested in being part of the wider forum and/or the core group was held on 2nd March 2005. This involved focused workshops to find ideas about how the Local Access Forum should operate. The core group of the Local Access Forum met for the first time on 3rd May 2005.
