Activity Idea: Visitors centre

The provision of a visitor centre or education/study base may not only be a focal point, but indeed the chief reason for a visit to a wood.
 

Planning permission will be required for a permanent site and capital investment may be significant, but there are numerous revenue opportunities (provision of courses, sales centre, food and drink outlet etc).
