Shared Road Protocol Update

Shared Access on Forest Roads; a protocol

The Timber Transport Forum wishes to promote and encourage the sharing of forest roads in the public and private sectors as an alternative to using sensitive parts of the public road network. The Shared Access protocol provides details of what should be considered in developing agreements for shared access.  It has been updated in 2018 to include ancilliary infrastructure associated with forest roads.

Further Guidance on CAR and forestry activities

The Water Environment (Controlled Activities)(Scotland) Regulations 2011 (CAR, as
amended) apply to forestry projects. A revised CAR Practical Guide was published in February 2018 and it can be viewed here.

Further guidance (on the practical guide) in the form of Q&A related to forestry activities is provided here.
