Other Information

Extensive public access throughout the woodland and the use of signage is essential. Timber extraction to stacking areas should avoid wet areas of woodland to minimise grounddamage. Ideally band tracks will be kept to a minimum where possible.

All drains crossed using brash must be cleared out following use.

Control and management of water is essential.

Please note that the haulage route has been identified as a consultation route by the local council. We are awaiting confirmation of the restrictions to be imposed.

Please be mindful of badgers. Although no sett has been located, there is evidence of their presence throughout the woodland.

Viewing and Submission Date

Viewing can be undertaken at any time, but we ask that you notify our Perth office prior to going on site.

Please submit your tender in writing to our Perth Office by noon on 3rd May 2019
