Partnership Plan 2015-2020

The first Management Plan for the New Forest was published in 2010 and updated in 2015. It includes a summary of the special qualities of the New Forest and describes a vision for how the New Forest should look and function in 20 years time.

The original National Park Management Plan was updated in 2015 and has been published as the Partnership Plan for the New Forest National Park. It includes new priority actions for the period 2015 – 2020 to help deliver the two national park purposes and duty. The Plan also gives examples of recent projects and describes new issues affecting the National Park.

It was produced jointly by all the main organisations with interests and responsibilities in the National Park, including:

  • Environment Agency
  • Forestry England
  • Hampshire County Council
  • Natural England
  • New Forest District Council
  • New Forest National Park Authority
  • Test Valley Borough Council
  • Verderers of the New Forest
  • Wiltshire Council.

They agreed the text and contributed many of the actions. Further actions have been taken forward by more than 20 other local groups and organisations. The agreed Plan was the result of comprehensive public consultation, with more than 100 responses received, many of which led to amendments to the document.

The main partners meet regularly and reports are being published annually to show progress of the actions.

The 2010 Management Plan

The Partnership Plan should be read in conjunction with the original Management Plan published in 2010. This contains more details about many aspects of the National Park and sets out the vision and long-term objectives for the area.
