Overview

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 organization to leave some feedback on our proposed revision to the Forest Plan for Wyeside and Tidenham that lies within Gloucestershire.  This forms part of our consultation with stakeholders that helps to ensure that we achieve an appropriate balance of objectives.

Why We Are Consulting

The Plans covering Wyeside and Tidenham have 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.

The Forest Plan is available to view and download in PDF format on A4 online within the Survey.

This part of the consultation will run for 33 days and will close on: 24th March 2017

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.
