The BHS has issued a policy
on proposals to fence commons.
The Society will object to proposals for the fencing of those commons to which equestrians have access where such proposals do not adequately protect and provide for access for equestrians. Any permission given for fencing should be time-limited.
BHS Director of Access, Safety and Welfare, Mark Weston, said: "We believe that this policy represents the best for equestrians, whose access to commons may become restricted by fencing."
