The application for funding was agreed at Monmouthshire County Councils, Cabinet Meeting, on the 4th June 2014, and passed calling in, on the 14th. We have been awarded £21,000 of the £22,120 applied for. As soon as I recieve full details of what the next steps are we will need to call a meeting/hold a dicsussion on the way forward. Minutes of meeting and Decision log available here: http://www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/meetings/event/cabinet-3/
I have been in contact with Renew Wales and signed up for their mentoring scheme, which will provide invaluable support to the community, towards, amongst other things, managing the woodland over the long term. website: www.renewwales.org.uk
The next step whilst waiting on the s106 application details is to come up with a name for the woodland, a few ideas, already out in the community are: Wyesham woods, Wyesham Community woodland, Claypatch woods, Brickyard woods, Doggy field 😉 etc
once we have a few neames together I will put together a survey.
After reviewing all the responses the most accessible date and time is Friday the 7th March 2014 at 18:30, I have booked the community hall adjacent St James Church, Wyesham for the meeting.
The meeting will be to update everyone on the current position, discuss any ideas or queries and to form a steering group to look after the woodland going forward.
Please pass this onto anyone else who may be interested, I look forward to meeting you there , if you have any queries or items for discussion before then please don’t hesitate to contact me

Using the results of the survey as a guide and due to the tight deadline we have submitted an application to Monmouthshire County Council to potentially allocate money from the section 106 funding pot. I have attached a copy of the applicaiton here:
Monmouth S106 Application Form web version
Also a copy of the site plan submitted with the application here:
Current and proposed site plan
Nothing is set in stone however should the bid be successful it will be even more important that a steering group be formed to manage the project going forward.
