Conservative party promises "stronger protections for our ancient woodland"

Commitments to public woodland ownership, to ancient woodland protection and to "natural flood management" feature in the Conservative party manifesto, launched today ahead of the 8 June general election.

The manifesto reads:

We will continue to ensure that public forests and woodland are kept in trust for the nation, and provide stronger protections for our ancient woodland.

It also states:

We will deliver on our commitment to improve natural flood management, such as improving the quality of water courses to protect against soil erosion and damage to vulnerable habitats and communities.
