Anyone buying a house or land in the vicinity of the Forest may find themselves to be Commoners. Apart from some of the pastoral rights (grazing animals and wood-cutting), Commoners are entitled to vote for representatives on the Board of Conservators, and are obliged to pay a Forest Rate, which goes towards the expense of managing the Forest.
In March, the commoners hold an annual meeting, where the commoner conservators are elected. Information about the commoners meeting is published from the end of January.
