Sevenoaks Greensand Commons Consultation

Posted on Jul 21, 2017

Sevenoaks Greensand Commons Heritage Lottery Funded Project

This is to update you on this exciting project which covers all the Commons managed by Sevenoaks District Council.  Locally, these are Crockhamhill, Farley and Hosey Commons. There is also a cluster of sites in Seal, and Sevenoaks Town Council managed Sevenoaks Common, in total an area of about 300ha.

Since October 2016 we have been working with a wide range of local groups, organisations, individuals and the landowners to work up ideas for an exciting programme of practical habitat restoration, public participation in scientific research, involvement of local schools and groups, heritage learning activities and access improvements across all the Commons.  This consultation will continue over the late spring and into the summer to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to have an input into the project.  The result will be a worked up costed proposal of around £700,000 for the HLF to consider in March 2018.

We will be leafleting properties adjacent to the commons and carrying out other consultation activities.  Updates and further details will be posted on the project website at: http://www.kentwildlifetrust.org.uk/sevenoaks-greensand-commons.  Please do get in touch if you would like more information or to become involved in any way by contacting Andrew Willmore – Sevenoaks Greensand Commons Project Development Officer, 07720 093128 Andrew.Willmore@kentwildlife.org.uk
