Translocation of Beavers to Glen Affric: EIR release

Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004

Information requested

Can you provide all correspondence relating to TFL and Scottish Government ministers, and official correspondence including FLS on beavers and particularly their potential reintroduction into Glen Affric.


I have uploaded Forestry and Land correspondence along with information from Scottish Government’s Wildlife Directorate to the following googledrive website:

You will be able to download the documents to your computer or other device. The documents will remain on the website for 10 days and then will be removed. Please ensure you have downloaded the documents before then. If you have any issues with downloading any of the documents please do not hesitate to contact me and we can arrange for it to be sent to you in an alternative format.

Please note that the material has been redacted to remove the names of FLS and third parties in accordance with Data Protection legislation.

I have confirmation from Scottish Forestry that they were consulted on the Beaver Translocation Consultation - River Beauly Catchment Environmental Report as a member of the Strategic Beaver Advisory Group, but they are yet to formally respond. Please not that this report is a 
consultation document and therefore any further information regarding this should be made to Nature Scot.

Due to the size of the files we are unable to upload the documents referred to above. If you wish to consider, please contact us at the address below and we will be happy to provide.
