Over the past several months here in the Dean, the Forestry Commission has been working with various stakeholder groups on a project aimed at setting a new direction for the way in which our Forest is managed. This is an exciting initiative, which has partly arisen from the Heritage funded Foresters' Forest project but is being undertaken by our local Forestry Commission as a separate but very much related initiative.
A draft strategy for consultation is now available and your input is being sought to help shape the next step. The Society's committee will write formally to the Commission to comment on the draft from the history society's perspective, but everyone has this opportunity to have a say in what our Forest will look like and how it will be managed to the benefit of all for generations to come. Please respond!
The draft strategy is attached below
