Wharncliffe and Wombwell Forest Plan

Closed 18 Dec 2020

Opened 6 Nov 2020

Overview

We would like to invite feedback on the proposed  Wharncliffe and Wombwell Forest Plan which lies in South Yorkshire. The Wharncliffe and Wombwell Forest Plan (FP) summarises proposals by Forestry England for the management of 3 woodlands - Wharncliffe, Old Park and Wombwell.

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 18th December 2020.  Any comments should be submitted through the online survey form before the closing date. Feedback received after the closing date can not be considered.

What happens next

This online Stakeholder Consultation closes on the 18th December 2020. We will then examine the feedback and where possible, incorporate suggestions into the forest plan.

The forest plan will be submitted to the Forest Services, the regulatory arm of the Forestry Commission, and placed on the public register to run concurrently with the public consultation. Subject to feedback approval will be obtained from Forest Services.

The approved plan will be made available on the Forestry England's website at www.forestryengland.uk
