It would seem that some of the residents of the New Forest are still pushing to have Sportive's banned from the area.
I know this is a subject that's been done to death but it doesn't look like the issue is any closer to being resolved for some residents despite moves made by Wiggle to appease them.
The following is taken from a recent Brockenhurt Parish Council meeting minutes:
"On the cycling issues, Cllr. Thornber is now a member of the NPA and reported that the Wiggle has offered various concessions to reduce the problems of the sportives but that the NPA can apply for the removal of permitted rights which would require the organisers to obtain permission, should the Code of Conduct be broken, and that the county council can apply for a ban. A request was made that the parishes affected should be able to identify the places that they would like the sportives to avoid".
Are the days of Sportive's in the forest really numbered?
