Rowney Warren's North Shore site avoids being dismantled
Good news for Chickshore, we got a letter from Ian the chairman this morining and it read as follows
I had a meeting this morning with Southill Estates (the landowners) and The Forestry Commission regarding savinf Chickshore. Both organisations are very supportive of what we are doing in Rowney Warren. The Forestry Commission have agreed to take over liability for Chickshore. Due to some technical lease issues between FC and Southill (which I will not bore you with), this will last for 6 months while a longer term management plan is worked out for Rowney Warren. Some of the older constructions will need to be removed following an audit by The Forestry Commission Civil Engineer with Robert Nayler the Freeride Area Manager. A further audit is planned for early next year by one of The Forestry Commission Civil Engineers directly involved in MTB trail building projects. Additional changes may come out of that.
So a very big thanks to The Forestry Commission (especially Steve Knight) for stepping in and helping us out on this one.
Also as a note, Robert Nayler and Darren are responsible for the bulk of the Chickshore building. Robert has also been central in the negotiations to save Chickshore. Thanks are due.
