Changes to Permission Applications

We are currently unable to accept any new permission applications for events and activities in the New Forest. The Permissions team are currently working through the new Habitat Regulation Assessment with Natural England requiring revised procedures, updated documentation and protocols.  

We are currently working under Tiered Covid-19 restrictions with limited capacity for events. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
