Woods, forests & Open Spaces Society

The Open Spaces Society have come out very solidly against the proposed sell-off of our woods and forests.

Kate Ashbrook, their general secretary, says, among other things: "We have said that we are opposed to any sale of public forests and woods unless the prospective purchaser has signed an agreement, legally-binding in perpetuity, to protect the woodland; maintain and create new rights for walkers, riders and cyclists; convert any pre-existing permissive access into legal access, and welcome informal access, free of charge, at all times. We have no evidence that the government intends to insist on these requirements."
