A friend of mine recently was riding on the heath
and she came across a group of cattle strung out across the bridlepath with no way through – the only way off was to turn round. Fortunately her horse
remained calm throughout. But you can imagine how a nervous horse might react ........... read more
Landmarc and Ministry of Defence Land
"I can say that without any fear of making false statements, that it was agreed between myself and a senior Landmarc staff member that the best solution was for demarcation "
Says Tony Barnett
In 2012-13, I had reasons to contact Landmarc, spoke to Richard Brooks and one of his colleagues regarding Common Land at Hankley,Elstead and Ockley.
Members of the public were quite often spoken to by members of your workforce and Military personnel over rights of way, and being told that (they) the horse riders and dog walkers were trespassing on MOD estates land.
My contacts with Landmarc therefore centered around those issues.
I can say that without any fear of making false statements, that it was agreed between myself and a senior Landmarc staff member that the best solution was for demarcation, I then passed this information on to local residents for them then to make contact with yourselves.
2013 saw movement on this demarcation issue with local horse rider Sandra Smith and a meeting on this subject was held on 16th January 2014, Mrs Smith misrepresented matters by leaving out other members of the public in favor of equestrians only, subject to the Jan 16th meeting there is to be another where plans and maps are to be gone over and amended accordingly, I wish to attend this meeting on behalf of the general public so that proper information may be disclosed, also as it was me that arranged for demarcation to be set in motion originally.
I am aware that Landmarc was not represented at the first meeting.
