Along with other areas of the country the Forestry Commission will be introducing car parking charges at Allerthorpe Woods very soon.

According to the Forestry Commission website:

“Forestry England grows, shapes and cares for over 1,500 of England’s forests and woodlands.
Looking after these special places costs millions of pounds every year. Money raised from car parking is spent on these forests and woodlands that we care for. With your help, we will grow more forests and woodlands, create more habitats for wildlife and keep them as great places for you to visit.
The money raised from our car parks supports our work and the forests you love”.

A start date for the charges has not yet been published nor has the cost but at Ennerdale in the Lake District the cost starts at £2 per hour up to £8 for a day.

It is possible to become a National Forestry Commission member which costs £94 a year and gives you some benefits including free parking at all FC forest car parks.

In some parts of the country it is possible to become a local member. The annual subscription for Dalby Forest near Scarborough is £60 a year.

If you would like to make contact with the Forestry Commission, you can e mail them at [email protected] or call 0300 068 0400.
