The ONE VOICE group will focus on achieving open and transparent public consultation
opportunities for New Forest residents and visitors in relation to any future proposals
for local authority/government changes including, but not limited to, the New Forest
National Park Authority.
We will lobby to ensure that full accountability mechanisms are in place within any
existing or newly formed organisation, charity, charitable trust or consortia that
express an interest in the management of the Public Forest Estate within the New
We will lobby to ensure open and transparent public consultation opportunities are
made available to all members of the public on any future proposals to merge PFE
and/or National Parks within Hampshire, Dorset and Sussex.
We will utilise our website to communicate the latest relevant information and will
continue the email newsletters on a regular basis, which may also include advice
and information on lobbying where appropriate.
Mechanisms for debate and feedback on subjects and issues that specifically concern
individuals and/or communities will include our Forum, the ONE VOICE website, public
meetings where appropriate, and email correspondence. We will also make representations
on behalf of the group where necessary or requested.
Our ethos remains that of providing relevant and factual information to those who
feel they are not adequately represented elsewhere, and this information will then
empower people to make informed decisions on the future of their communities.
