Feedback on forest plan requested

The Forestry Commission are asking residents to complete a questionnaire on a revised Brandon and Elveden forest plan which is now live for statutory and public consultation.

Forest plans define the long term vision for a woodland or a collection of woodlands and set out how management will move towards achieving this vision over the next ten years.

Feedback on the proposed forest plan covering Brandon and Elveden is being asked for by the Foresty Commission. The plan area is situated west of Brandon and north of Elveden, along the B1106, within the three parishes of Brandon, Elveden and Wangford.

The online questionnaire forms part of a consultation with stakeholders that helps to ensure that they achieve an appropriate balance of objectives.

It is a requirement that all Forestry Commission woodlands are managed to the high standards needed to meet the UK Woodland Assurance Standard that in turn ensures sustainable forest management certification of the Public Forest Estate is maintained.

The forest plan is available to download in PDF format on A4 or alternatively viewable online within the Survey.

The online consultation will run until the 8th October 2017.

Any comments should be submitted through the online survey form before the closing date. Feedback received after the closing date may not be able to be considered.
