Hello all,
for those of you who come across to work on the Wales side of the Welsh
border, you might be interested in having a read of this document and
giving some comments.

It looks like it is chapter 2 that directly relates to forestry / tree
issues and the consultation document can be viewed here:

https://consultations.gov.wales/consultations/taking-forward-wales-sustainable-management-natural-resources


And if anyone is still reading at this point, here are the 8 or so
questions (in the usual government speak) - for those of you not interested
in forestry issues Question 10 might still merit a response.


*Question 4*

Do you agree with proposals to align NRW’s general duties (including the
balancing duty) under the Forestry Act with the sustainable management of
natural resources?



*Question 5*

Do you agree that NRW should be able to delegate its responsibilities for
managing the Welsh Government Woodland Estate to others? Please indicate,
whether you consider if there should be any limitations on NRW to delegate
these functions.



*Question 6*

Do you agree that a long-term forest management plan agreed between a
forest manger/owner and NRW could be an appropriate way to regulate and
authorise the felling of trees?



*Question 7*

Do you agree that conditions in a conditional felling licence or long-term
forest management plan should align with the sustainable management of
natural resources?



*Question 8*

Do you agree that NRW should be able to revoke or amend felling licences or
forest management plan approvals? Please indicate if you foresee any
difficulties amendment or revocation might cause.



*Question 9*

Do you agree with the proposals relating to the repeal of the requirement
of the RAC?



*Question 10*

Do you agree with the proposals to improve the protection afforded to
valued veteran and heritage trees by refining the existing statutory
frameworks, principally the tree preservation order regime?


Happy reading and responding!


regards

Bettina
