Proceeding to Stage 2 of the Woodlands Creation Planning Grant be approved, and a woodland establishment appraisal be endorsed for the following sites –

Reasons for the decision:

In November 2020, the Council agreed a Net Zero Action Plan with a recently revised target date of 2027.One of the initiatives in that Plan is the establishment or enhancement of Council green spaces for natural carbon offsets and co-benefits. A Woodlands Establishment Board has identified three under-used sites as potential woodland sites, and desktop assessment of these sites has been completed. Securing funding through Stage 2 of the Forestry Commission’s Woodlands Creation Planning Grant will enable a more thorough site analysis to be undertaken, and a Forestry Commission approved woodlands management plan to be produced.
