BOC writes:

Consultations are currently open on a bill to change the appeals process for forestry licences.

The proposed changes seek to make it harder to appeal licence decisions for forestry projects (such as sitka spruce plantations) by introducing eligibility criteria for individuals of NGOs, as well as proposing the introduction of fees to file an appeal.

Consultation on changes (at links below) close this Friday. Please share. Thank you
