Braydon Woods Forest Plan 2018-2028

Opens 22 Sep 2018

Closes 22 Oct 2018

Overview

Forest Plans define the long term vision for a woodland or a collection of woodlands and set out how management will move towards achieving this vision over the next ten years.

We would like to invite you or your organisation to leave some feedback on our proposed rewrite of the Forest Plan covering Red Lodge, Somerford Common and Webbs Wood in Wiltshire. This forms part of our consultation with stakeholders, that helps to ensure that we achieve an appropriate balance of objectives.

Why We Are Consulting

The Forest Plan that covers Red Lodge has come up for renewal, and the opportunity has been taken to amalgamate this plan with the adjacent plans for Somerford Common and Webbs Wood. We are therefore asking for your feedback to ensure the objectives are considered and balanced for the proposals being put forward in this amalgamation of the existing Forest Plans for these woods.

It is also a requirement that all Forestry Commission woodlands are managed to the high standards needed to meet the UK Woodland Assurance Standard that in turn ensure sustainable forest management certification of the Public Forest Estate is maintained.

Several documents are available to download below and please note most are produced on A3, but should be scalable to print on A4 if needed. Note that if printing at A4 maps will not be to stated scales.

This part of the consultation will run for 31 days.

STARTING:- Saturday 22nd September 2018.

ENDING:- Monday 22nd October 2018.

Any comments should be submitted through the online survey form before the closing date.

Feedback received after the closing date may not be able to be considered.

This consultation will open on 22 Sep 2018. Please come back on or after this date to give us your views.
