National Forest Visitor Accommodation Development Acceleration Plan

Andrew has just finished work on pulling together an action plan for the National Forest Company to accelerate accommodation development in The National Forest, drawing on the research and analysis that he undertook back in 2014 to help inform the National Forest Destination Development Plan; the research that we have been undertaking in North West Leicestershire and Staffordshire; and a survey of landowners in the Forest. The Accommodation Development Acceleration Plan sets out a number of key priorities for the development of a high-quality woodland accommodation offer that reflects the core brand values of The National Forest and a programme of specific actions to achieve this. Andrew is now in discussions with the National Forest Company to look at how to take the Acceleration Plan forward.
