West Midlands Woodland Opportunities

Version 2 Woodland Opportunities maps and guidance (below) were published in June 2007.  In addition to filling in the gaps in version 1 outwith the urban areas, version 2 has two new priority maps to guide woodland creation and management. These priority maps supersede the version 1 composite map and are likely to feed into developing regional scoring under EWGS (England Woodland Grant Scheme) for 0809.  For further information on the mapping process please contact Simon West - Policy & Partnership Manager (
