Bernwood Forest Plan 2019-2029

Closes 24 Aug 2019

Opened 26 Jul 2019

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 feedback on the proposed Bernwood forest plan. This plan includes the Forestry Commission managed woodlands Shabbington and Chinkwell in Buckinghamshire, and Waterperry in Oxfordshire.

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 is also a hard copy which can be viewed at the Forestry Commission Office in Wendover.

The online consultation will run until the 24th August 2019. Any comments should be submitted through the online survey form before the closing date. Feedback received after the closing date can not be considered.
