Lydford Forest Plan Questionnaire

Closes 13 Oct 2023

Opened 30 Aug 2023


The Forest Plan for Forestry England's Lydford Forest is due for renewal. This plan covers Lydford forest, the Brentor woods (Asheltor, Cole's and Langstone Woods) and Burley Down Woods.

Forest Plans define our long-term vision for a woodland or a collection of woodlands, and set out how our 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, which is available to download below in PDF format. 




Why your views matter

As part of the forest planning process, we carry out consultation with internal and external stakeholders, to ensure that the objectives of the plan are balanced appropriately, and to meet the requirements of the UK Woodland Assurance Standard, through which our woodlands are accredited.

This online consultation will be available until Friday 13th October 2023.

We will summarise the feedback and our responses by the end of November in the 'We asked, You said, We did' area. Your comments will be anonymous - you can choose to leave your name, but we won't include it in our summary.
