Guisborough forest plan - Yorkshire district

Closed 19 Sep 2020

Opened 12 Aug 2020


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 at Guisborough Forest. 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 Guisborough Forest has come up for renewal. We are 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 is maintained.

The forest plan PDF is at the bottom of this page or can be downloaded via WeTransfer.

This part of the consultation will run until Saturday 12 September 2020.

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.
