The Forestry and Planning Hub brings together knowledge, expertise, and resources with regards to planning and forestry. It provides your first point of call for best practice within the sectors.

This resource has been developed in response to the Government’s Forestry and Woodlands Policy Statement. Specifically, it addresses the commitment to:

“Help to support a sector-led Forestry and Planning network encouraging them (woodland assets) to demonstrate how trees and woodlands contribute to sustainable development and help enable growth.”

The development of the site has been guided by a small steering group. It is edited with the support of Forestry Commission. Part of the site’s role is to ensure continuity of access to information sources relating to trees and woodlands as other websites are restructured.

We value your feedback. If you think something is missing, or have any other comments, please let us know. We are especially interested in examples of policy that is working well.
