Complaints about a specific forest or operation

Our Conservancy offices manage the local delivery of:

- grant applications
- forestry regulations
- felling permissions

You should initially contact your local office with any complaint related to these matters. This does not include land and operations managed by Forestry and Land Scotland.

How should I complain?

You can complain:

  • in person at any of our offices

  • your full name and contact details
  • as much as you can about the complaint

Due to the impact of COVID-19, we're unable to accept complaints by phone at this time.

Our complaints procedure

Our Model Complaints Handling Procedure provides full details of our complaints procedure and how to make a complaint. It also tells you what you can expect from us and how to escalate your complaint if you're dissatisfied with the results of our complaints procedure. We also aim to follow the Scottish Government’s Unacceptable Actions Policy

What if I'm still dissatisfied?

If, having gone through our complaints procedure, you're still dissatisfied you can appeal to the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman (SPSO).
