We maintain three public information registers:
- The register of legacy grant schemes and Forest Design Plans (FDP)
- The register of felling licence and Forestry Grant Scheme applications
- The register of Environmental Impact Assessments
Register of legacy grant schemes and Forest Design Plans
- Amendments to Rural Priorities Woodland Creation and Forest Plans
- Amendments to WGS and SFGS cases
- Forest District Forest Design Plans (including felling)
When we're prepared to approve an amendment or Forest Design Plan, we add the details of the case to the register. These stay on it for four weeks. We display them again once approved.
You can see a map that shows the boundary of the application, or a circle showing the location by clicking on the application reference.

Register of Environmental Impact Assessments
Under the Environmental Impact Assessment (Forestry) (Scotland) Regulations 1999, FCS must show the decisions it makes about whether proposals for certain forestry projects will significantly effect the environment.
You can see details of the case and FCS decision at the initial assessment stage (Opinion).
For cases where consent from FCS to carry out the work is required, details of two further stages are displayed:
- When the applicant arranges a scoping meeting; and
- FCS' final decision on whether or not consent will be given to start the work
The register of Environmental Impact Assessments page has more information and access to the register.
