Forestry Commission Scotland is inviting local groups and individuals to offer comment on the latest draft plans for the proposed land management plan for Corniehaugh in the Deveron valley, Rothiemay.

David Henderson, for Forestry Commission Scotland, said;

“There has been quite a bit of interest in this site amongst the local community and we have consulted extensively and taken a wide range of views and aspirations for the site into account. 

“These have been considered in our latest draft plan, which is now online for consultees to examine and provide further feedback.

“It has been very helpful to have local input to our efforts to developing a proposal for Corniehaugh that optimizes the site’s capacity to integrate and sustain a variety of different land uses.”

The plan and maps are available to view at
and will be available until 16th October 2014.
