Land management plan consultations

A land management plan is a document that details how we are planning to manage an area of the National Forest Estate. Usually the area covered by a plan is a forest or woodland, but it will often also include areas of open land.

These plans are put together in accordance with current policy and place a strong emphasis on delivering social, economic and environmental benefits. They cover a period of ten years, but also outline the longer term plans for the land beyond the ten year period.

Consultations

Forest Districts mapAll of the National Forest Estate's woodlands are independently certified as sustainably managed under the UK Woodland Assurance Standard. Keeping people informed of management proposals affecting their local woodlands is an important part of maintaining this certification.

When we develop a land management plan we gather views from a range of different stakeholders, particularly local communities. This helps us to develop the plan and balance and prioritise the sometimes competing objectives.

The plans are ordered by their Forest District (see map), but you can also order them alphabetically by clicking on 'Title'.
