That sounds like a very exciting proposition!
If it was me, my personal instinct would be to not flag up my plans in the firm belief I am not doing any harm! And only enhancing the beauty and function of the woodland. But, I can understand you wanting some confirmation before starting to invest your money, time and love.
Have you thought of contacting the forestry commission or the woodland trust? When I was looking to buy UK woodland in the past it has usually got some sort of protection written into the "ownership" in some way. But if you're not planning to live there and "build" then who's gonna notice?
I wish you all the success with your forest garden creation*
