This section of your woodland grazing plan should summarise what you propose to do to meet your biodiversity and cultural heritage objectives.

The grazing regime

Information for each grazing management unit, as defined in section 6a of your woodland grazing plan, should be entered in section 8a, using a separate row for each management unit. If the wood is to be grazed as one unit, say so in column 1.

In columns 2 to 6 of section 8a, summarise your anticipated grazing regime for the five years of the plan period. If, at the time of writing the plan, you anticipate changing the regime within the five-year plan period, e.g. by mob stocking in year 1, enter the details for each year that the grazing regime changes in separate rows. 

Other operations and activities

Section 8b of the woodland grazing plan is where operations necessary to meet your biodiversity and cultural heritage objectives should be listed, e.g. bracken control or new stock fencing. You can also enter woodland 'activities' such as areas of intended natural regeneration.

Give quantities and years in which proposed operations will be carried out. In the case of natural regeneration, give the year that you anticipate that regeneration will become established.

You should show the location of operations and activities on your grazing management map.
