In September 2020 Natural Resources Wales (NRW) and Motorsport UK signed a new access agreement which allowed rallying on NRW-managed land for the next three years.
The new agreement would see local economy boosting events return to the woodland estate until 2023 with a renewed importance on the potential impacts of motorsport on the natural environment.
The new agreement had environmental considerations at its heart with NRW and Motorsport UK committed to working together on the ambition to drive towards a lower carbon, greener and more sustainable approach to hosting the events in the future.
The new agreement would be subject to a review, entitled Sustainable Management of Natural Resources, the review, which commenced in Autumn of 2020, would be far reaching and involved many stakeholders. The review, which would take until the spring of 2021, was presented to the NRW board on July 14th.
The board accepted the recommendations and look forward to working with MSUK, the Welsh Association of Motor Clubs and Rally Event Organisers ensuring a sustainable future and the continuance of rallying on the woodland estate.
