There are many ways to involve people in planning decisions connected with woods and greenspaces. The kinds of people who want to get involved, what they want to achieve through their involvement, and what people want from their woods will vary from place to place and according to the unique characteristics of the forest and woodland concerned. Although a suite of different tools and methods is needed to suit local circumstances, these will need to sit within a strategic and comprehensive public engagement process plan.
These resources are intended to provide foresters and other land managers with practical resources supporting policies, programmes and projects seeking greater public involvement. They are also suitable for use by community groups and volunteers looking for similar material.
