The principle objective of the scheme is to deliver the Central Scotland Forest Strategy of increasing woodland cover within the CSF. Additional objectives are mitigation against climate change, improvement of an undermanaged area of greenspace, biodiversity and landscape improvements. A phase 1 habitat survey did not relieve any flora or fauna which would be adversely affected by woodland planting. The woodland design has sympathetically accounted for the existing path and desire routes. No EIA is required. CSFT hopes to involve the local community / schools with the woodland establishment through organising a planting event in November / December 2009.
