Risks and challenges
My risks are not achieving my monetary goal and therefor not being able to afford the plants, products and hire machinery and processing machine i need.
My plan is sound and I have costed and completed a basic management plan. It includes:
Improving access to the woodland for cars and other domestic vehicles by levelling and using limestone to improve the access track.
Creating a small carpark from crushed brick rammel and covered with inch chalk
Using inch chalk to create access tracks for lower mobility users.
Creating a meeting point, with map.
Adding safety barriers and signage.
Creating Wildflower patches on edges of woodland
Purchase of a branch logger to reduce tripping hazards from brash
Erecting a composting toilet
Erecting a forestry/coppice/greenwood workshop.
Applying for planning permission for a small meeting room.
When I am funded my first job will be to conduct a through planning exercise to maximise your value for money and the benefit to the local wildlife taking into account the codes of good practice and legislation I must adhere to.
The other risks I face is the everyday possibilities of ill health and accidents.
Poor weather conditions could hamper my work schedule
And market conditions for woodland products not being as saleable or as valueable as budgeted for reducing the return on investment and slowing further reinvestment.
