A Blog for the exchange of news and views about the moorlands and uplands of Scotland and beyond.
About the Forum
Forum was established in March 2002 with 24 member organisations.
Currently, there are 28 members and a full list is on the next page. The
Forum engages with matters influencing the moorland and upland of Scotland, and
while working to achieve a consensus amongst its members, actively promotes
improvements in policy, practice and management.
of the Forum
Lindsay has been the Forum’s independent Chairman, since November 2007.
Simon Thorp, the Director of The Heather Trust, is also the Forum’s
Director and Anne Stoddart is the Administrator.
From 1 April 2013, the support from Scottish
Natural Heritage for the work of the Forum has been provided through a Service Level Agreement. This Agreement was reviewed on 1 April 2016 for a further three years, and it covers the main meetings of the Forum and some working group activity. Members of the Forum are indebted to SNH for this funding.
Chairman's costs are met from a subscription paid by all the members.
