Register of grant schemes and Forest Plans

This Register contains details of new and amended Forest Plans, both from Forest Enterprise (Land Management Plans / Forest Design Plans) and from private forest owners (Forestry Grant Scheme Long-term Forest Plans). Both of these types of Forest Plans contain felling operations. This Register also contains amendments to legacy grant scheme contracts as detailed below.

Forest Plans

These applications are put on this register after the preparation of the Plan has been approved (in the case of FGS cases) and the draft Forest Plan has been submitted to Forestry Commission Scotland for assessment.

Please note that Long-term Forest Plan applications are for work that will take place on private land and you may need permission to enter the area even if the case is listed on the register. Land Management Plans occur on Forest Enterprise land that is accessible to the public.
