Future Forest


… to the start of an important debate about recreation in the New Forest National Park and surrounding area.

Some big issues are facing the New Forest in the coming years. The organisations with the main remit for both protecting the National Park and enabling people to enjoy it need your help to:

  • Provide the best recreational experience for local people and our visitors
  • Protect the very thing these people come to see – the spectacular, yet fragile landscape which is a haven for many rare wildlife species
  • Ensure limited resources are spent wisely.

Thanks to everyone who completed the summer 2017 survey – over 1,500 individuals and organisations. Sign up for email updates.
