Consultation Deadline

27/05/24
Delamere Forest

Forestry England's Woodland Creation Team would like to share with you and invite your comment on exciting plans for a proposed new woodland as an extension to Delamere Forest, on the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge.

The extension to Delamere Forest will be one of many new woodlands that Forestry England is planting which support Government targets to increase tree planting across the UK.

The new woodland will be a 'Coronation Wood' to celebrate the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III. The woodland will cover 40 hectares and join up with the existing Delamere Forest, which Forestry England already manages.

  • Full details of the proposed new woodland can be viewed by CLICKING HERE.
  • You will be able to view and comment on the proposals by CLICKING HERE. The deadline is 22 October 2023.
  • There will also be a public event between 4-7pm on 10th October at the Delamere Visitor Centre to look at the proposals, provide feedback and get involved as the woodland plans take shape.

Following this, formal approval will be sought from the Forestry Commission for the new planting scheme.
