Another Officer with another authority has asked the question (below) re 
track building for woodlands being exempt from planning control. I don't know 
answer, but hopefully someone out there does.



I have been receiving consultations from the Forestry Commission regarding
the Better Woodlands for Wales Scheme. Within the consultations the
indicative work types include the usual thinning, woodland management,
however very often there is included 'track building'. 

I have gone back to the Forestry Commission and stated that aside from any
comments upon trees, track building may require prior notification (The Town
and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995, Schedule 2,
Part 7 (Forestry Buildings and Operations)) to be submitted to the planning
department. At the moment they are still looking into it for me. 

I am unsure whether the BWW scheme is exempt as the woodlands may not be
classed as 'forestry', however I wonder whether yourself or anyone else in
planning in Wrexham has come across this one?
