The National Forest

The National Forest is a story of regeneration.

25 years ago, large swathes of the Midlands landscape had been left scarred by centuries of coal mining and other heavy industry. But a passionate group of people had a vision: a forest. The first forest to be created at scale in England for over 1000 years, it transformed and literally turned the landscape from black to green. But the story doesn’t stop here. This is our National Forest. It belongs to us all. The benefits must be felt by you and everyone to be truly sustainable.

Planning Solutions is working closely with the National Forest Company to create and ensure the National Forest’s stewardship for future generations.
