Important news: PLEASE READ!

3rd July 2013 - National Forestry Forum

Defra launched their “New PFE Management Organisation: Governance Premises Summary”

This document sets out a summary of the initial assumptions and working premises.  It is a work in progress and no elements are irrevocably fixed.  Please take a few minutes to read it (only 4 pages) and let us know your initial thoughts and comments.  We can then feed this back to Defra/FC at our next meeting.

There will be little time to consider these proposals when they reach the pre-legislative scrutiny stage, so it is important that the public (that’s you!) tell us how you envisage the future management of the Public Forest Estate.  When it is set in legislation there will be no turning back.  Email us your thoughts.  More information can be found in our 4 July newsletter.
