Abstract
Forest Plans aim to deliver long-term environmental benefits through sustainable forest management and consists of a strategic plan describing the major forest operations over a 20 year period. RDC Forest Plans were closed to new applications in 2012, but the dataset is still updated in terms of boundary changes to felling phases and LISS. Support was given to help prepare a Forest Plan through the SRDP's Woodland Improvement Grant (WIG) for long-term forest planning. An approved Forest Plan gave a 10 year approval for felling, thinning and provided the means of accessing grants for restructuring felling and regeneration and other grant support through Rural Development Contracts - Rural Priorities. This dataset stores information on the Forest Plan boundary, the 1st and 2nd clearfell phases (1-5 years and 6-10 years) and areas managed under Low Impact Silvicultural Systems (LISS). Basic attribute information is captured during the digitising process. This is subsequently joined to more comprehensive information which is entered in an Excel spreadsheet by Conservancy staff. Attributes ======= Case_No : RDC Case Reference Number. GIS_Area : Area generated from spatial data capture Descriptor: Description of the spatial feature Fell_Start: Start year of felling phase. Fell_End: End year of felling phase. Local_Auth: Local Authority RPAC: Regional Proposal Assessment Committee Cons_Name: Conservancy Grid_Ref: National Grid Reference Claim_Area: Area claimed for the Forest Plan. This only applies to the FP Boundary Cont_Start : Date of Approval Cont_End : Contract end date.

dataset
Statement
This dataset is maintained by Scottish Forestry Geo-Information Services and utilises information entered into a spreadsheet by Scottish Forestry Conservancy staff. Information is usually captured from scanned applicants maps. These maps should clearly show Forest Plan boundaries and areas of felling and LISS. Details for these maps are interpreted and captured against RPID field boundaries, Ordnance Survey MasterMap, aerial photography and other relevant datasets where required (e.g. previous grant schemes).
