Forest Park Implementation Framework

The proposed Forest Park comprises an extensive area of woodland adjoining the M27 motorway on the border of Test Valley, Southampton and Eastleigh.

To accompany the approved Green Infrastructure Strategy the Council has produced a Forest Park Implementation Framework. The purpose of the framework is to set out the approach for bringing forward the Forest Park proposal as a green infrastructure asset for south Hampshire within and beyond the plan period of 2029.

This document was subject to public consultation from 24th January to 7th March 2014. Having taken account of comments received, the Council’s Cabinet approved the Forest Park Implementation Framework on the 29th October 2014.
