Onny Forest Plan

Closed 26 Oct 2014

Opened 26 Sep 2014

Results updated 27 Jan 2017

The consultation has now closed. An account of all comments and Forestry Commission response is viewable by clicking on the Consultation Record.



Forest Plans define the long term vision (usually 50 years) for a woodland or a collection of woodlands and set out how management will move towards achieving this vision over the forthcoming decades.

We would like to invite you or your organisation to leave some feedback on our proposed amendment to the Forest Plan covering Onny (including Strefford Wood, Callow Hill, Berry Mill and Saddle Hill) in Shropshire.  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 Onny 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 this wood.

It is also a requirement that all Forestry Commission 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 Public Forest Estate is maintained.

This part of the consultation will run for 28 days from Friday 26th September 2014 to Sunday 26th October 2014.

Any comments should be submitted through the online survey form before the closing date.

Feedback received after the closing date may not be able to be considered.

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.
