North Norfolk Forest Plan 2018-2028

Closes 14 Jul 2018

Opened 15 Jun 2018


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 feedback on the proposed forest plan covering Forestry Commission managed woodlands across North Norfok located between Norwich, Fakenham, Holt and North Walsham. This includes Weybourne, Hempstead, Edgefield, Snoring, Wade's beck, Bintree, Bylaugh, Haveringland, Marsham, Hevingham, Horsford, The Wilderness and Bacton.

This online questionnaire forms part of a consultation with stakeholders that helps to ensure that we achieve an appropriate balance of objectives.


Why We Are Consulting

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

The forest plan is available to download as a PDF below or alternatively viewable online within the Survey. There are also hard copies available to view at Sheringham Park National Trust visitor centre and North Walsham & Costessey libraries.

The online consultation will run until the 14th July 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.
