Comment 6 - The Sustainability Appraisal Report appears to have something of an optimistic bias in it's assessments.

Thank you for consulting the Forestry Commission. As a Non Ministerial Government Department, we provide no opinion supporting or objecting to a policy, an application or site allocation. Rather we provide information on the potential impact that a proposed development would have on ancient woodland. Having reviewed the Sustainability Appraisal Environmental Report, June 2019, I am happy to confirm that the Environmental Report complies with the Government's 'Standing Advice' on the importance and protection of ancient woodland.
