Cannock Chase Forest Plan 2024 Consultation

Closed 30 Apr 2024

Opened 26 Mar 2024


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 revision to the Forest Plan covering the woodlands around Cannock Chase Forest. This forms part of our consultation with stakeholders, that helps to ensure that we achieve an appropriate balance of objectives.


Why your views matter

The Plan for Cannock Chase Forest 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 England 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 nations forests is maintained.

The Forest Plan is available to download below in PDF format on A3 or alternatively viewable online within the Survey.

This part of the consultation will run until 30th April 2024

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 the regulatory arm of the Forestry Commission, for any further consultation required prior to approval.
