Blairhouse is a former opencast mine site located in south Fife. The site is approximately 90 hectares. As part of the management of our woodlands we produce land management plans which lay out our management strategy for the next 10 years and beyond at each of our sites. This land management plan for Blairhouse will cover works relating to establishment of new woodland on the former opencast mining ground.


  • 2018/2019 - site survey, site analysis
  • September 2019 - creation of design concept for the woodland including social, silvicultural and conservation aims. Presentation of concept plan to community liaison group
  • November 2019 – public consultation event with local communities and stakeholders at Oakley Community Centre
  • February 2020 – online consultation with local community and other statutory stakeholders on a draft plan with a view to seek subsequent approval from Scottish Forestry. As part of the approval process, the plan will be placed on Scottish Forestry's public register for 28 days where you will have the opportunity to comment
