Statement from the National Trust regarding ‘Forest Fit’

In an eMail to the council The National Trust has said:

We have issued a 6 month licence to the Forest Fit Club in line with our consultation period which includes consent from N(atural) E(ngland). This will be the only licence for a fitness club issued on these commons. This shorter than usual period will allow us to measure and control the use of the commons by this particular group ready for review at the end of the term. Within the licence we have restricted the use to twice daily (rather than the current 3 times daily).
