Public Forests Protected from Development

An amendment to the Infrastructure Bill that will see publicly-owned forests protected from development has been hailed as a success by environmental campaigners.

The Bill would have allowed the government to have passed public forests, along with other publicly-owned land, to the Homes and Communities Agency who are charged with providing land for development.

Campaigns such as that by 38 Degreesto ‘Save our Forests’ which gained over 170,000 signatures has forced the government to ensure that the forests are excluded from any land sell-offs.
