Ashdown Access

245 Signatures Goal: 250

***Ashdown Forest Update*** The conservators of the forest have contacted me and after discussion there might be a way forward on the issue. The by-laws allow cycling in the forest, if permitted by the conservators. Which is a step above the original response of the by-law do not permit it! I have now opened up a dialog with the conservators and there seems to be a distinct warming to this issue! I am going to push for this issue to be voted on, but in the mean time the more petitions I get the better the argument! Thanks I have decided to try and see if trail access for mountain bikers in this area of Sussex can be made legal. My argument is that mountain bike will :- a) Cause no more damage than walkers and far less damage to trials than horse riders b) Bring a huge economic boost to the areas local businesses c) Promote the councils sustainable transport strategy d) Promote a healthy recreational sport e) Help raise the environment profile of the Ashdown Forest d) Promote a sustainable trail building regime to the area by setting up a voluntary group to help re-build eroded trials e) To create a way marked bike trail for families to enjoy.
