Future Forest


… to 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 develop a new and updated suite of focused actions so that, across the National Park and beyond we can achieve a net gain for the working and natural landscape and for the recreational experience, by:

  • protecting the spectacular, yet fragile, wildlife-rich landscape that people come to see
  • managing recreation for local people and our visitors.

We also need to use limited resources wisely.

National Park Chairman


'We must all work together to manage recreation and ensure the Forest is fit for the future.'
