News from the Forestry Commission - I would strongly recommend that you go along to the session to see how this may effect mountain biking on the Chase :
"The Forestry Commission is about to review its Management plan for
and its future forestry operations. Cannock Forest
To allow members of the public the opportunity to view the future proposed plans and comment on these a ‘Public Drop-In Meeting’ is to be held here at
on Monday 22 April between 15:00 and 19:30. Birches Valley
There you will be able to look over the plans and talk to representatives from the Forestry Commission about the proposed plan. So why not come along and see what the forest will look like in the future.
The consultation period will run until 31 May 2013 after which the plan will be finalised and approved with copies being available in the
Stafford and Rugeley reference libraries.
The Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) team will also be there with information and you will have the opportunity to discuss with them their work on Cannock Chase."
