Number of complaints regarding dogs in offices within Scottish Forestry: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

How many official complaints have been received about dogs in offices within Forestry and Land Scotland/Scottish Forestry and previously Forest Enterprise Scotland/Forestry Commission Scotland in the last three years?


I can confirm that in the past three years from 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20 there has been no complaints received by any Scottish Forestry owned/managed offices.

For completeness, as of 1st April 2019 new organisational arrangements came into being, with the establishment of two new Scottish Government Executive Agencies. Scottish Forestry, which replaced Forestry Commission Scotland, is the Scottish Government agency responsible for forestry policy, support and regulation. Forestry and Land Scotland/Forest Enterprise Scotland is also an executive agency of the Scottish Government and it looks after Scotland's national forests and lands.

Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS) will respond separately on this issue regarding their offices.
