Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) - Save Our Forests Campaign News

Whilst the original plans for a complete sale of the Public Forest Estate have been put on hold, as a direct result of the countrywide campaign against such a proposal the Government appointed a 'Panel of Experts' to review all aspects of the Estate.

On January 31st 2013 the Government announced its official response to the Independent Panel on Forestry's (IPF) Final Report on the future of England's Woods and Forests. The Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) issued a short response to the Government official response to the Final Report on the future of England's Woods and Forests. You can view the FoTF response by clicking here.

Throughout the campaign, from its inception when the Government first announced the planned sale of the Public Forest Estate to the reversal of that decision and the commissioning of the 'Panel of Experts', to the subsequent Governement response, the Friends of Thetford Forest have campaigned to ensure FoTF, and FoTF members, views were known.

FoTF have issued campaign updates so that members were aware of the recent announcements and the work the Friends were undertaking in this area. To view the most recent update please click here
