Eriff and Bellsbank land management plan consultation

The Eriff & Bellsbank block lies around 5km south of Dalmellington, South Ayrshire.

We are developing a land management plan for the block that details our proposals for management of the area over the next ten years. Draft versions of the plan will be published here and we invite comments and feedback from the public on the proposals.

Community consultation event

A ‘drop-in’ public consultation is scheduled for 30 November 2017 at the Bellsbank Community Wing (PDF 1.24MB). Come along any time between 4pm and 7pm to discuss the Land Management Plan proposals with FCS staff and explore the key issues for the forest. Everyone is welcome to attend including local community, statutory stakeholders, NGOs, specialist groups, etc.
