Bradfield Moorland regeneration scheme. Environmental statement.

The Forestry Commission has now considered the application and the information provided by the applicants in an Environmental Statement and has decided to give consent for the proposals subject to the following conditions:

  • The deforested parts of the site to be managed as a mosaic of dry dwarf shrub heathland, wet heath, mire communities and new native woodland buffering the watercourses; and
  • The remaining two thirds of the site to be retained and managed as woodland in order to minimise the impact of the proposals on  important woodland fauna and the water quality of the Strines Reservoir

A summary of the case and a statement of the reasons and considerations on which the decision is based are available during normal office hours from the Forestry Commission, Sherwood Office, Edwinstowe, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire NG21 9JL. Telephone: 01623 821446 or email: .
