About Us (continued)

How We Do It

The NFA is represented on many New Forest committees, including the New Forest Consultative Panel, the Forest Design Plan Forum, and the Open Forest Advisory Committee.

Through the work of our committees and our Council the NFA is able to monitor and influence the policies and activities of the organisations managing the New Forest. It is a listed consultee of the National Park Authority.

Research papers published include our 'Loss of Grazing Survey' and 'Commoners Housing Review'. Both highlight the increasing problems faced by the next generation of commoners trying to find affordable housing and land from which to continue their vital contribution to the future of the New Forest.
