The Carrick and Changue Land Management Plan (LMP) is an extensive area of conifer plantation that lies between the small village of Barr to the west and Tairlaw Toll to the east, around 12.0km south of Straiton in South Ayrshire.

We are developing this land management plan for the block that will detail 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 all of our proposals.

Community consultation event

An open drop-in meeting and presentation to the local Community Council has been planned for 8 March 2018 in Barr Village, South Ayrshire (grid reference NX276940).


  • Winter 2017/18: Initial stakeholder scoping / consultation and drop-in meeting.
  • Spring 2018: Ongoing consultation and woodland design including coupe design, species choice and management proposals.
  • Summer 2018: Land Management Plan submission to Forestry Commission Scotland as part of LMP approval process (the final plan will be placed on the Forestry Commission public register for 28 days)
