Surrey Hills Forest Plan 2023-2033

Closed 2 Mar 2023

Opened 19 Jan 2023


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 Forestry England managed woodlands in the Surrey Hills. This forms part of our consultation with stakeholders that helps to ensure we achieve an appropriate balance of objectives.

Why your views matter

The Surrey Hills Forest Plan has come up for revision. We are asking for your feedback on the management proposals and objectives in the plan.

We are required to manage our woodlands in line with the UK Woodland Assurance Standard certification scheme. This helps to fulfil our objectives as sustainable land managers within the nation’s forests. The Forest Plan is available to download below in PDF format.

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.
