Last week the Government published details of its forestry and woodlands policy in response to the report from the Independent Panel on Forestry, published in July 2012.

The statement confirmed that the Public Forest Estate will remain in secured public ownership and that the Government’s previous policy of disposing of 15% of the Estate has been formally rescinded.

I am sure that this news will be welcomed by the many Rother Valley residents who campaigned against the proposed sell-off of our forests.
