KD 4980 - Enfield Rural Catchment Project – Woodland Creation – Enfield Chase Restoration

It is proposed to increase the extent of woodland in rural areas of Enfield, linking together existing small fragmented pieces of woodland across the Enfield agricultural portfolio. A subsidy package has been developed utilising external bodies funding opportunities to offer a payment scheme to compensate tenant farmers for land committed into woodland creation to enable the creation of a sizeable, publicly accessible woodland (60 – 100ha). Supplementary improvements to the public rights of way alongside the woodland creation is being proposed to provide benefits associated with amenity, biodiversity and reduced flood risk.
