Bourne Woodlands Forest Plan 2023

Closes 13 Dec 2023

Opened 13 Nov 2023

Overview

We would like to invite feedback on the proposed Bourne Woodlands Forest Plan.

The Bourne Woodlands Forest Plan area is 717.5ha comprises the Bourne Wood, Temple Wood, Gunborough Wood, Spring Wood and Callan’s Lane Wood. Situated in South Kesteven, Lincolnshire, the Bourne Woodlands lie to the NW of the town of Bourne.

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.

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

Why your views matter

It is a requirement that all Forestry England woodlands are managed to the high standards needed to meet the Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC®) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification™ (PEFC™). All Forestry England’s forests and woods are independently certified as sustainably managed, to continue to benefit future generations.

The forest plan is available to download as a PDF below and can be viewed as part of the questionnaire.

The online consultation will run until 13th December 2023. Any comments should be submitted through the online survey form before the closing date. Feedback received after the closing date cannot be considered.
