Forestry Commission Scotland is seeking views from local people on the future development of Carron Valley.

A 10-year Land Management Plan is in the process of being drafted and will be on display to members of the public on Saturday 14 March 2015 from 1pm - 4pm at The Clanranald Hut in the main Carron Valley car park.  

The Land Management Plan sets out the vision of the forest in the future and the Commission is keen to inform people of the proposed plans and to gain their input to help shape it.

The consultation will be held as drop in session with maps and information on the proposals, and Forestry Commission Scotland representatives will be present to help answer questions and gather comments from the local community and site users on the plans.

Forestry Commission Scotland community ranger, Andy Gallacher said:

“We’re really keen to get feedback from as many people as possible about our proposed plans for Carron Valley.  This is a great opportunity for the local community to get involved and comment on the future of their local woodland.  We’re looking forward to talking to members of the community and hear what they would like to see in their local woods.”
