Oppose Government Forest Sell off!

It was announced recently that the government plans to sell off many public forests to private entities (link)!  The selling of public lands could mean that they’re no longer open to the general public to use and enjoy as they currently do.  Such closures are not only a potential threat to us mountain bikers, but also to dog walkers, horse riders and to anyone who enjoys getting away from overcrowded towns and cities to spend time in areas of natural beauty.

Currently it isn’t known which forests are planned to be sold however the loss of any public playground isn’t an appealing prospect.

TROG are supporting and promoting the on-line petition opposing these proposals, in addition to signing the petition, writing to your MP and making your feelings known will hopefully encourage them to challenge these proposals.  A list of MPs and their contact details is available here.  There is also a template letter in the Members Lounge forum.
