Natural Resources Wales


Natural Resources Wales (NRW) was formed on 1st April 2013 following the amalgamation of Forestry Commission Wales (FCW), Countryside Council for Wales and the Environment Agency staff in Wales. It is the largest Welsh Government public sponsored body with approximately 2000 staff, an operating budget of £17 million and manages 7% of the land in Wales. Natural Resources Wales aims to play a central role in delivering sustainable development for Wales. This means bringing the management of our natural resources and environment together in a balanced and integrated way, to deliver benefits for the people, environment and economy.
