Westonbirt - the National Arboretum, which is managed by the Forestry Commission, will hold an open evening on April 15 to share development plans for the Westonbirt Project with the local community.

Between 6-8 p.m., local residents are invited to the Great Oak Hall to meet the Westonbirt Project team and find out more about future developments to the National Arboretum and associated planning applications.
Architectural visuals will be on display and senior staff from the Forestry Commission and the Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum (FOWA) will be available to discuss the arboretum’s future.

Westonbirt Project director, Miranda Winram, commented:

“We are keen to share our vision for the arboretum with the local community throughout the development of the Westonbirt Project. Westonbirt is an internationally important place for heritage, learning and conservation. We believe that the project will protect the site for people to enjoy in the future.”

“We’d like as many local residents as possible to be able to attend the evening so please do contact us if you’d like to discuss wheelchair access, the hearing loop or any other matter relating to accessibility.”
