Stapleford Forest Plan

Closes 20 Aug 2021

Opened 5 Jul 2021

Overview

We would like to invite feedback on the proposed  Stapleford Forest Plan which comprises of two distinct blocks of plantation woodland, Stapleford Wood (303ha) and Stapleford Moor (131ha), situated approximately 4 miles to the north east of Newark-On-Trent. 

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 we are consulting

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 questionaire.

The online consultation will run until  20th August 2021.  Any comments should be submitted through the online survey form before the closing date. Feedback received after the closing date can not be considered.
