The Forestry Commission publishes details of grant scheme and felling applications that it is prepared to approve on the Register of grant scheme and felling applications. The consultation period is 28 days and during this period, we will invite comments from statutory consultees and will supply further details of an application on request to other interested parties who wish to comment.
From September 2006, we have changed the way case details are accessed through our online Register. England, Scotland and Wales each have separate grant schemes and you should refer to the country page for further details of how information is displayed on the register for each country.

Asking for more information and submitting comments - general principles
- E-mail, or write to the relevant Forestry Commission Office, quoting the scheme reference number as displayed on the Register. As our new G&L Online system is developed, you will eventually be able to submit comments on a case online.
- Copies of the application will NOT include personal information about the applicant (e.g. name, address, telephone number, amount of grant, etc).
- If the copy is large or if copies are requested regularly, we may charge a fee for this service.
- All comments received are considered, in consultation with the applicant and, if appropriate, the application may be amended or rejected.
- Please note that most applications are for work that will take place on private land and permission may be required to enter the area. The inclusion of the area on the Register of grant scheme and felling applications does not change this requirement.
