Forest centre plans are unveiled
Artist's impression of how one of the designs would look
The winning design will represent the 50m lottery bid
Plans for a new visitor centre at Sherwood Forest have gone on show to the public.

Six designs for the new facility, which would represent the county council's bid for 50m of lottery funding, will be on display until 7 January.

The attraction has been short-listed by the Big Lottery Fund for its Living Landmark Award.

The designs will be on show at Sherwood Forest, Ollerton's Rufford Country Park and Nottingham Ice Arena.

Council officials want to know what residents think of the plans before they choose the winning design to submit for the award, which will culminate in a televised public vote in 2007.

Other plans for the attraction include raised tree top walkways and a discovery centre.

The authority also wants to plant more trees and extend existing cycle routes.
