Background

Waterperry Woods is a large block of woodland near Oxford with a network of grass paths and woodland rides. Over recent times these paths have degraded and have become unusable for both the public and the Forestry Commission resulting in the local community not being able to access and enjoy the woodland as well as preventing the Forestry Commission from completing some essential forestry management works.

The Project

The aim was to reinstate the existing network of grass paths and rides. This will allow access to Forestry Commission staff, easy access for essential management and to the local community wider enjoyment of the woodland.

Our Project management role

A.G.A. Group Consultancy took complete ownership of this project on behalf of the Forestry Commission providing a bespoke Project Management service, from ‘Concept to Completion’.
