Penny Jackman joins National Park Authority

The New Forest National Park Authority welcomes new member Councillor Penny Jackman to the Authority.

Mrs Jackman said: ‘I am looking forward to being a member of the New Forest National Park Authority.  The Authority works with a large number of organisations and local people and I’m looking forward to getting involved and making a difference on the ground.’

Julian Johnson, Chairman of the New Forest National Park added: ‘We welcome Cllr Jackman onto the Authority and I look forward to working with her. She will bring a wealth of knowledge with her and she is actively involved in her local community; sitting on a number of different committees. Being a commoner she also understands the complexities of the New Forest.’

Mrs Jackman is one of two Councillors for the Pennington Ward where she has been a councillor for the past four years. She was one of the founding members of Forest Uprising in 2008 that worked closely with the Authority on a number of policies relating to recreational horse-keeping; she also helped establish the independent Equine Forum which is now central to this work.

She is a practising commoner and in her spare time she enjoys showing her New Forest Ponies with her daughters.
