Warcop consultation flawed

MOD undertook a public consultation between May and July this year on its proposal to revise two undertakings given in respect of land at Warcop Training Area. The Federation was not invited to take part in the consultation/ comment on the proposals. We heard about it through a solicitor in  Appleby after the end of the consultation period. 

The Federation strongly opposes the proposal to de-register the land as common land  and we sent a letter of objection. The committee agreed that we will take things further in two ways - meeting with Cumbria County Council who hold the Commons Registers and writing to our Local MPs and Councilors.
