Haldon Forest and SSSI Plan

Closed 30 Sep 2017

Opened 22 Jun 2017

Overview

Forest Plans and SSSI 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 revision to the Forest and SSSI Plan covering the woodlands around Haldon in Devon.  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 Plan for Haldon has come up for renewal.  We are therefore asking for your feedback to ensure the objectives are considered and balanced for the proposals being put forward in this rewrite for these woodlands.

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.

This part of the consultation will run until 30th September 2017.

 

What Happens Next

Once this online Stakeholder Consultation has closed, we will examine the feedback and where possible, will incorporate suggestions into the Forest Plan.

We will then submit the Forest Plan to Forest Services, the regulatory arm of the Forestry Commission, for any further consultation required prior to approval.
