CTC and Sustrans united against "discriminatory" New Forest Charter

In the latest stage of developments in the ongoing saga in the New Forest, CTC and Sustrans have shown a united front against the New Forest National Park Authority’s draft Charter.

Since a growth in cycle activities in the New Forest, there has been an increase in reports from local residents and organisations against organised cycle events. In response to this, the New Forest National Park Authority (NFNPA) has launched an “arm's length” exercise to produce a “Cycle Event Organisers’ Charter”. The Charter, which is currently in draft form, will go up for final amendment and approval tomorrow morning, 22 January.

CTC and Sustrans united against "discriminatory" New Forest Charter

Cycling organisations have taken a united stance today (Wednesday 21 January 2015) in opposing key aspects of the draft New Forest Cycle Event Organisers' Charter proposed by the New Forest National Park Authority (NFNPA).

The national cycling charity CTC and Sustrans have been actively involved in the Charter’s creation since its beginning and were instrumental in placing the Safety Advisory Group (SAG) at the centre of the process. As a result of their involvement, the Charter overall presents a balanced set of practices which aids in maintaining harmony between all users and inhabitants of the New Forest, and only presents a cause for conflict in certain areas.
