Consultation and assessment

Consultation

A consultation on the draft District Strategic Plans for Scotland's National Forest Estate was held between February and July 2014. A summary report titled ‘You Said, We Did’ will be published in late 2014.

Forest Enterprise Scotland considered the consultation responses and this summary report shows how the District Strategic Plans have been amended to account for the consultation responses.

Equality Impact Assessment

The strategic plans have each been subject to an equality impact assessment (EqIA) to ensure that full consideration is given to all sectors of society and how the plans may benefit or impact upon them. The EqIA's for each plan can be viewed at: Equality Impact Assessments
