Federation will object to MOD wanting to de-register common land at Warcop

Do you remember in late 2012 we objected to the Ministry of Defence’s proposal to de-register the land at Hilton, Murton and Warcop Commons?  I have received a letter from the MoD consultants to say that the Minister of Defence Anna Soubry agrees with the MoD’s proposal to de-register the land as commons land and they will now be applying to Cumbria County Council to de-register the land. For all the details see https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/warcop-training-area-restructuring-of-common-land-undertakings-consultation

Alyssia Ashurst at Cumbria County Council says
“I'm meeting with my managers and legal team early December to discuss how we will process this application. Notice of the applications will be advertised and there will be an opportunity to make an objection, I will update you when I know more.”

We will certainly be objecting.
