WE’VE WON! The government has just confirmed they’re totally scrapping the forest sell-off. The phoney consultation has been cancelled. The sinister legal changes to pave the way for privatisation have been dropped.
This decision affects all of the forests included in the consultation, which is great news – not just the Forest of Dean. On a local level though, full credit to the HOOF team for their unrelenting effort – that was a first class campaign.
