Guidance - Planning - SNH and FCS National Concordat for Forestry Related Casework

As partners in the Scottish Government’s ENFOR Directorate, FCS and SNH have developed a positive working relationship over the years based on collaboration and joint working at local and national levels.

Both organisations are keen to build on this good work and also to support the Scottish Government’s wish to drive operational and cultural alignment across rural affairs, food and environment outcomes and priorities. This joint work is now taking place within the context of both the 2016 Mackinnon report on the arrangements for the consideration and approval of forestry planting proposals and the 2017 draft Climate Change Plan target to increase the rate of woodland creation.
