Public registers

We maintain two registers that give information about certain decisions we make. 

Grant scheme and felling applications
This Register details grant applications to carry out new planting, or other forestry work, and any felling included in the grant application.  If only felling is proposed, details from the felling licence are published. A map displaying the boundary or location of the proposals can also be viewed. Case details are displayed at the stage when we are prepared to approve the application and remains on the Register for four weeks.  Case details are displayed again when the application has been approved. 

Environmental Impact Assessments
Under the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) (Forestry) Regulations 1999 we must show the decisions we make about whether proposals will have a significant effect on the environment. Details of the case and our decision at the initial assessment (opinion) are shown.

Where our consent to carry out the work is required, details of two further stages are displayed, when the applicant arranges the scoping meeting and our final decision (determination) about whether or not consent will be given to start the work.

Any comments received may be made available to any other interested party.
