Abstract
Description: Forest Plans were introduced for landowners planning to carry out felling, restocking and thinning in their woodlands over a 20 year period. The Forestry Commission (now Scottish Forestry) provided a grant to help prepare a plan (Plan Preparation Grant) and owners can claim restocking grants set at the same rate as the Woodland Grant Scheme (1999 - 2003) or Scottish Forestry Grant Scheme (2003 - 2006). Once the plan is approved, a Forest Plan contract provides felling and restocking approval for 10 years. Forest Plans (SFGS) were closed to new applications in December 2006. ********************************************************************************** Dataset Attributes: Descriptor Description of the spatial feature SchemeNo Forest Plan number SchemeName Name of the Forest Plan Status Current status Prop_Type Property type (business, personal, voluntary) Owner_Type Owner type (owner, trust) Grid_Ref National grid reference Local_Auth Local Authority Cont_Start Forest Plan contract start date Cont_End Forest Plan contract end date Cons_Name Conservancy name Area_ha Total area of work type ******************************************************************************************

dataset
Statement
Information is mapped from Forest Plan contract maps supplied by the applicants (normally based on 1:2500 or 1:10,000 OS maps). Spatial data has been digitised against OS raster backdrops using 1:25,000 scale between 1999 and 2000, and 1:10,000 scale between 2000 and 2003. From 2004 onwards, OS Mastermap has been used as the base mapping. This dataset was regularly updated following the schemes closure up until 2017. No further updates will be applied.
