The Laurieston forest block lies around 22km east of Newton Stewart and immediately to the north of Gatehouse of Fleet, in Dumfries and Galloway.

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

Community consultation

We will be contacting stakeholders and community groups directly. However, there are no specific community consultation events planned for this particular land management plan.


  • Spring/Summer 2017: Initial stakeholder consultation
  • Winter 2017: Ongoing consultation. Woodland design including coupe design, species choice and management proposals.
  • Winter 2017/18: Land Management Plan submission to Forestry Commission Scotland as part of approval process (The final plan will be placed on the Forestry Commission public register for 28 days)
