New Northern Forest gets Government backing

08 Jan 2018

The Prime Minister has announced plans for a new Northern Forest, along the M62 corridor from Liverpool to Hull, as part of the Government's 25 Year Environment Plan.

Spanning more than 120 miles, the proposed Northern Forest will help boost habitats for woodland birds and bats and protect iconic species such as the red squirrel – alongside providing a tranquil space to be enjoyed by millions of people living in the area.

The announcement forms part of the government’s upcoming 25 Year Environment Plan, which will set out how we can be the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we inherited it.
